It is a fundraiser benefiting the programs, services and research initiatives of the Center for Autism & Related Disabilities. This event is a festive celebration designed to raise autism awareness while entertaining our guests with fine food, drinks, music, dancing, and acknowledging the tireless efforts of important community partners.
