Our Founders

Angels in Disguise was founded by Mike and Penny Michalak after the birth of their daughter, Elena Rose. Elena was born with Down syndrome. Having grown up with an Uncle With Down syndrome, Uncle Ray, Mike & Penny were overjoyed to have another Angel into their lives. Seeing the response of those around them and being made aware of the challenges still facing individuals with Down syndrome, Mike and Penny held a concert for Elena's first birthday, to celebrate her in a special way. This concert grew into a cause to "Celebrate the GIFT of DOWN SYNDROME!"
