About the Annual Community Breakfast

The Annual Community Breakfast is Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center's premier fundraising event. Funds raised during this signature event directly benefit our innovative programs, services and research initiatives. Guests experience a moving, memorable portrait of SARRC’s impact on individuals with autism and families served through our programs and services. Each year, the event draws community and business leaders, sponsors, parents, volunteers and public officials and has grown to be one of the largest and most anticipated charity events in Arizona. View our 2022 Annual Community Breakfast event, Better Together, on SARRC's YouTube channel.


There is no cost to attend the event, but as SARRC's signature fundraiser, donations are encouraged! Please note that registration will close Friday, March 31.

table captains

Table Captains are essential to the success of the Community Breakfast. By hosting a table, Captains connect us with community members who are passionate about autism, help us increase awareness and educate our community. Table Captains are supported by our team leading up to the event, and equipped with all the tools and resources needed to reach out to their personal networks.
