AFC all set to sparkle

March 13, 2013 by  

This month will see Autism Families CONNECTicut (AFC) host its annual ‘A Sparkling Celebration’ fundraiser, now in its fourth year.

The event will be hosted at The Clubhouse at Gillette Ridge Residences in Bloomfield, Connecticut and will benefit social, family, and recreational events for children with autism through the organization of AFC programs.

The evening is set to be one to remember, featuring catered appetizers, champagne, wine, and desserts. Live and silent auctions will occur during the evening, bringing out the competitive side in all guests. Sponsors Rockville Bank Foundation and Pratt & Whitney will help make the event a successful celebration, and Tizziana Weber of the latter company will serve as honorary chair.

AFC board president Leah Bailey Moon states of the event:

“All funds raised during this event stay in our community, and benefit local programs to provide exercise, recreation and friendship to children with autism who are often unable to participate in mainstream activities.”

For a $40 ticket, participants help AFC provide autistic children and their families with suitable activities like swimming, social nights for teenagers, running clubs, and music therapy. Those interested in supporting the nonprofit event can help the mission through their attendance and willingness to participate in an exciting evening.

Many in surrounding areas like Rocky Hill, Hartford, and Windsor may be interested in attending the AFC event. In order to promote A Sparkling Celebration in the most effective way possible, AFC might consider using digital business cards or flyer printing services to spread the word to other local communities.

The event will be held on March 23 from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm.
