2019 Opening Doors for Autism Gala - Thank you!
It's hard to believe, but it's been 25 years since the first #OpeningDoorsforAutism Gala! A huge thank you to everyone who came to, or otherwise supported, this exceptional event!
This evening would not have been possible without our generous sponsors, including our Title Sponsor Cameron Corporation.
We are excited to announce that the Opening Doors for Autism Gala raised a record-breaking $682,583! All proceeds from the Gala benefit Autism Edmonton's mission of enhancing the lives of people on the autism spectrum.
We have a number of long-standing supporters that have been offering their financial support and volunteering their time and expertise for a long time, for which we are incredibly grateful! In particular, we would like to say a big thank you to the Gala Planning Committee for making the Gala a success!
Attended by 600 guests, it was an overall extraordinary event and further proof that we are surrounded by a genuinely supportive community. It featured an elegant social atmosphere with live music and entertainment, gourmet dinner, as well as a raffle, live, silent, and art auctions. Our auctions included 300+ items, including exciting and unique experiences, artwork, and vacations donated by generous individuals and groups in support of the event.
Our heartfelt congratulations go to Tina Naqvi-Rota, the recipient of the 2019 Gino Ferri Community Builder Award, and Deborah Barrett and David Jardine, the recipients of the 2019 Opening Doors for Autism Award.Your dedication and commitment are more precious than can be measured.
Special thank you to our guest speaker - Brune Sinneave - who is a huge supporter and advocate for our Society. Our work is possible because people like you care about the future of our community!
