Autism Speaks to Young Professionals at the NYSE
The organization that started it all for me is having a fundraising event that I actually get to attend, rather than plan! Autism Speaks to Young Professionals is a cocktail party taking place on the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange. I can't think of a better way to entice the Generation Y crowd into getting involved in a cause that will severely impact our future (our children!) unless we do something about it.
The event takes place on Thursday, August 6 from 7-10 p.m. It's being organized by the sassy and savvy Justine Benisch, who I've had the pleasure to work with on numerous Autism Speaks events, so it's pretty much guaranteed to be a fantastic evening. $50 pays for your entrance fee, open bar, hors d'oeuvres, and of course, supports an organization that is changing the future of autism.
