Tropical_Nights_Logo2.png
Tropical Nights is your way to help those affected by autism living in South Florida. 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. The overwhelming success of Tropical Nights over these past years has allowed CARD to maintain its services during times of tremendous constituency growth and budget cuts. For this, we are extremely grateful to our supportive community and generous donors. Funds raised at Tropical Nights help support valuable programs and services, all of which are provided at no direct cost to families.
