Dear Friend of AutismUp,

AutismUp has provided customized programs and services to support individuals and families living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) for over a decade. Improving quality of life has always been our mission and support from friends like you has been paramount to our success.  Since our inception, we have envisioned a centerpiece for the autism community to learn and grow and have their many needs met in one place, with the goal of being successful within the local community.

Our vision became a reality last April when we opened the doors to our newest endeavor!  Our innovative multi-sensory learning environment provides custom social skill, recreation and fitness programs in a family-friendly, safe and supportive environment. Yet, despite our many accomplishments, there is much more work to do.  Thousands of children with autism are now on the crest of adulthood. AutismUp is creating a continuum of supports to help teens and young adults with vocational, recreation and social opportunities that will guide them into the future.  In order to increase our current programming and implement our plan for the future, we need your help.

Your gala sponsorship will help thousands living with ASD. Participation fees only cover a fraction of the cost it takes to give individuals the proper support they need to be successful.  Your support is more important than ever because it will help to hire and train behavior and vocation support coaches, and expand support levels for all ages and abilities — helping to stop the isolation and pave the way to a bright and hopeful future for the individuals we serve.

In addition, your sponsorship is an opportunity to promote your organization to guests of the gala and thousands of members and supporters, while illustrating a commitment to fostering the development of our community.  We will happily recognize you with related benefits at each sponsor level.

Will you help us today & provide hope for tomorrow?

Our Spring Gala is a celebration of accomplishments and a focus on the future, outlining a bold new destiny.  I invite you to become an event sponsor and support our efforts in 2017, and beyond.  Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to seeing you on April 29!

Sincerely yours,
