Our Art for Autism (AFA) Auction 2016 is just around the corner!

Art for Autism (AFA) 2016 is just around the corner, and off to a fantastic start! The Gala Auction, Dinner and Dance will be held Saturday, October 1st at the beautiful Sheraton in Downtown Seattle.  With stunning views of the Sound and the Seattle skyline, it is a magnificent setting to celebrate and support the work, cause, and mission of NBA. Our theme this year is “Glitz, Glamour and Gatsby”- this evening promises to be dazzling, and will highlight the extraordinary work of NBA staff, and the real and significant difference they make in the world of each child they serve.

Come for the gorgeous setting, the fantastic food and music, the amazing array of items, and the shared purpose, as well as the company! This event is a great way to meet and connect with other NBA parents, friends and community supporters.

Our goal this year is to raise $200,000.  We can do it with your help!  Let’s all pull together to make this our most successful auction ever! Here’s what you can do:

1. Join the Committee. Our meetings are lively, fun and productive. Just contact Alex. Chehab at:

 achehab@nba-autism.com to join!

2. Procure items for the auction. Whether you have an item or service to donate, or have a business or personal contact to approach, you can make a contribution to our success. Please also contact Alex for procurement materials, should you be willing to help!

3. Volunteer to work the day and/or evening of the Auction. We’ll need lots of folks to help! Contact Deanna Neher at jdneher@frontier.com

4. Do you have any gently used or new baskets you no longer need? NBA is looking for some to   package up each individual program manager’s themed basket items.

5. Attend the Auction and invite your friends. It is a wonderful way to share the passion you have for NBA, and to get others involved in supporting the great work that goes on here.
