A big event is coming to KSAT12: The Morgan’s Wonderland “Cheers to Ten Years” virtual gala hosted by Adam Caskey, and it will feature guest stars Eva Longoria and cast members from “The Good Doctor.”

Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first fully inclusive, ultra-accessible nonprofit theme park, is closed due to the pandemic, and had to cancel its annual in-person fundraising gala.

So while the park is closed for now, that doesn’t mean you can’t lend a hand.

“You’ll get a little bit of background as to how we started and how far we’ve come in ten years," said Gordon Hartman, Morgan’s dad. "It’s going to be an incredibly upbeat, positive opportunity for people to see what Morgan’s Wonderland and all of our other endeavors are up to and how people can get involved.”

From 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 25, tune into KSAT12 on air, online, on Facebook Live, on your smart TV by downloading the KSAT-TV app, or on Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV by searching for “KSAT-TV” in the app store.

Morgan’s Wonderland Inclusion Foundation, a new nonprofit, will coordinate fundraising and planning among all Morgan’s Wonderland-associated projects for years to come, including The MAC (Multi-Assistance Center), the group said.

The closure of the nonprofit parks will have a dramatic economic impact – a loss estimated at more than $1.3 million, according to Morgan’s Wonderland.

“Since we have been closed this year, there is no income coming in and there’s a lot of expenses still going out,” Hartman.
