VIDEO: Autism Advocacy is at the Fore in April
A look inside the nonprofit Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children.
To mark the outset of Autism Awareness Month, Patch stopped by the Montgomery Village headquarters of CSAAC, one of the oldest and largest autism service providers in the country. A pair of fundraisers this month will help benefit the 32-year-old nonprofit agency:
- On April 7, an exhibit at the L2 Lounge in Georgetown will feature photographs that CSAAC clients recently took of the cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C. The photos will be up for sale, with proceeds benefiting CSAAC. The exhibit runs from 7 p.m to 11 p.m.
- On April 28, a "Happy Hour for Autism" at Nick's Riverside Grille will help commemorate Autism Awareness Month. The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and will include silent and live auctions, a dinner buffet and drink specials. Doug Hill, meteorologist for ABC News 7/WJLA-TV, will be a guest auctioneer. Auction items will include an autographed Michael Jackson album and Sylvester Stallone boxing gloves. Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available. Admission is $30 ($45 for VIPs).
