Dear Friends,

We hope you are enjoying your summer! We worked so hard to bring you the best spring ever with parent workshops, BE SAFE training, our Annual Health and Safety Fair, and PALS presentations. We are so grateful to all the volunteers, participants, and sponsors who worked just as hard to support us in our Designer Bag Bingo, Greene Turtle Funds with Friends Night, and Annual Golf Tournament!

We hosted our Second Annual iCan! Shine Bike Camp and experienced more success than we could have imagined!  We will soon be riding 100 miles from Baltimore to Dewey Beach with our largest team yet.  And we are MOST excited to announce we are moving even closer to opening our center based programs - STAY TUNED!
 
As always, we continue our fundraising efforts to realize each of our mission areas.   We have big plans for the rest of this year and we rely on the generosity of the community to make our dreams of supporting individuals with Autism and their families a reality!   We make it a point not to solicit funds from families impacted by Autism for these programs, but just hope you will spread the word about our events! All fundraising stays LOCAL and directly supports our initiatives.
