2020 Dinner Dance Information
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much for all of us. Our normal routines have shifted in unpredictable ways, and our time spent with loved ones and friends has been interrupted with postponed, or even cancelled, celebrations.
Protecting the health and safety of all those we hold dear is paramount, so we made the decision to cancel our annual dinner dance this year. While we are disappointed that we are unable to hold this event, we ultimately felt it best to not take any unnecessary risks to you and yours!
However, the need is greater than ever for the autistic community so we will continue to honor Jack’s legacy by accepting grant requests and hold our annual raffle.
Win a $2,000 AMAZON SHOPPING SPREE!
Have some fun shopping at Amazon for electronics, books, apparel – whatever strikes your fancy!
