SARRC's Annual Community Breakfast was given a makeover for 2020 allowing nearly 1,200 guests to attend the 22nd annual event virtually.
The event, which was themed “Here for You,” recognized the ongoing efforts SARRC has been making to ensure that the necessary support continues for clients and families through the coronavirus pandemic. The 25-minute virtual event, which debuted on Thursday, May 21, featured personal stories from families, clients, and community leaders who shared their experiences from home.
During the program, Dr. Daniel Openden, SARRC’s president and CEO, shared that, “Like people with autism, this sudden change in routine hasn’t been easy for any of us, and we’ve all had to learn to adapt. As for SARRC, we’ve been able to do so because, for 23 years, this community has been here for us. And it is this community that will continue to stand by SARRC as an essential partner, and together, we’ll not only overcome this challenge but emerge stronger than ever.”
Funds raised support SARRC’s mission to advance research and provide a lifetime of support for individuals with autism and their families.
Consider making an online, tax-deductible gift to SARRC, which will help us continue to provide the necessary supports to the children, teens, and adults we serve.
