Our Premiere Fundraising Event!

Check out our new platform for the Gala event!

  • Purchase tickets for in-person and virtual attendance

  • Become a sponsor and view our sponsors

  • View our Silent Auction items and bid

  • Participate in the Live Auction

Many things have changed over the last months, but one thing remains the same: our annual gala event is the most important fundraising event to offer financial support to families raising an autistic child!  

Since November our applications for financial aid have been piling up as we eagerly awaited our gala event.  We have been unable to offer any new family grants while we await the funds raised on this night.  Due to the current situation, we have had to postpone, get creative and find new ways to give you an experience you won’t forget.

Our partnership with The Parker Foundation for Autism and Child Development will make our 2020 gala the best yet!  We are transporting you to the streets of Rio de Janeiro through an evening filled with street performers, as well as a silent auction, assorted heavy Hors d’oeuvres, open bar, live entertainment, and a DJ.

We are offering a few new ways for you to enjoy our Carnaval do Brasil 2020 while directly contributing to families in need:

  • VIRTUAL PARTY! Purchase a Watch Party from the luxury of your home with catered food and beverage
  • Sponsor a table, join the VIP party, purchase a ticket and join us at the Hilton
  • Make a donation and receive the link to view the party and live entertainment
  • Participate in the virtual silent auction

Even if you can’t make the event you can still help:

  • Silent Auction: Contribute an item(s) or service(s) that will be on display for auction

  • Event Sponsor: Your company name will be listed prominently in the program and you will receive recognition at the event, on our website, and on our social media platforms

  • Advertising: Purchase space in our gala program which will be distributed to your place of business

  • Come be a part of the event and join us for a night of fun!
