Autism has become more frequent in children than it used to be, and families that have kids with autism are deeply affected by the condition as well. They know how difficult it is to meet their child’s special needs, especially when it comes to communicating and socializing with other people.
To help promote autism awareness and kick off Autism Awareness Month, a Kickoff Luncheon will be held on March 7. Proceeds of the luncheon will benefit the programs of Autism Oklahoma, a charitable organization that provides special programs for families affected with autism.
The luncheon and auction will be from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the Will Rogers Theater. The luncheon is free and has a maximum capacity of 300 people. For the silent auction, many packed and individual items will be available, including a custom framed Jason Blackmon autographed print. Goodies from local bakeries will be part of the dessert auction.
In addition to the luncheon and auction, a raffle will be held during the event. Raffle tickets are available for sale without any limit on the number of tickets to be purchased. Ten tickets can be purchased for $20.
