Dina Buno is the star of the 2017 film “Dina,” which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Best Feature Film at the International Documentary Association and the Peek Award from the Utah Film Center, which honors individuals who make a positive impact on society's perception of people who are differently-abled. A resident of Glenside, Pennsylvania, Dina is an active member of the Abington Aktion Club—as well as an autism advocate and public speaker. She is currently working on her memoir. She lives with her husband Scott and her cat Salem.  



A magical and touching celebration of the human spirit unfolds at numerous theaters across the country: A group of children in a program called The Penguin Project take to the stage to perform a modified version of a well-known Broadway musical. These productions are unique, however, because all the roles are filled by young artists with developmental disabilities. They are joined on stage by a dedicated group of “peer mentors”, children the same age without disabilities who have volunteered to work side-by-side with them. By providing access to community theater, The Penguin Project demonstrates that the special challenges of a disability should not handicap a child’s ability to participate in life’s experiences. The Penguin Project is excited to bring its special brand of theatre magic to the Kiwanis convention stage!
