About The Event
This year we celebrated everyone on the Autism Spectrum and focused on their struggles to become accepted in our communities as employed individuals. We also observed our organization’s 11th Anniversary!
Each year our dinner recognizes the wonderful people who keep our organization viable, those who make major contributions to our local communities, and our clients who persevere despite the odds against them. This year we emphasized once more the talents and value that Aspergian adults could bring to their jobs, were they given the opportunity.

Dinner of Hope
We call our yearly fundraiser DINNER OF HOPE because we offer hope to those who, through no fault of their own, have been struggling with employment issues and life in general.
This year we focused on Aspies and their efforts to try to become viable members of society through gainful employment.
The intention of our event was (as it has been from the onset) to raise awareness about the need for employment of adults with Asperger’s Syndrome and to raise funds to enable us to help as many people as possible. Our Dinners of Hope are also a time to celebrate the successes of the past years and to look forward to more triumphs in the future.
