Thank you to everyone who has already booked!
We look forward to seeing you there.
Where the funds go:  Fundraising from this event goes to support programs like our innovative KicktStart program, helping children receive early intervention so they can reach their full potential.  Last year we were able to fund 33 children at $4,000 a child, thanks to your support!  We also funded one and two night respite stays for parents, which includes childcare expenses while the parent(s) are away.  Last year we awarded 30 stays.  We depend on our fundraisers and donors to operate our programs as we receive no government funding.  To read more about QuickStart Autism and our programs, go to
Thank you for making a difference.
Warm regards from your co-chairs
