Down syndrome, Edwards syndrome and Patua syndrome are the most common types of the birth defects classified as trisomy.
Gov. Sean. Parnell has declared March as "Trisomy Awareness Month." The luncheon is open to the public and takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. RSVP to 479-LIFE.
"Please join us as we share moral support and resource and educational information regarding trisomy," the sponsors say.
Jay Ramras and Pike's are also supporting the event.
