Because the health and safety of our community is of utmost importance, The Faison Center has made the decision to cancel our Action for Autism Gala and The Peninsula School Annual Breakfast in 2020. We look forward to when we can look back on this crisis in the rearview mirror, and hope you will all join us at these events next year to celebrate and support our community.
If you have any questions about these events please use the contact information for each event below.
For information on how The Fasion Center is managing this crisis, please follow us on Facebook @faisoncenter where were are keeping our community informed and updated.
Action for Autism Gala
Although we are unable to gather for our 2020 Gala, we are excited to announce the 2021 Gala will be held on Saturday, April 17, 2021. Our first annual Action for Autism Gala will be hosted in our brand new event space, The Flo and Tony Guzman Community Center. This event will still have our well-known live auction featuring world-class art as well as exceptional travel experiences. Reynolds Gallery, a valued partner, curates our art offerings from locally and nationally recognized artists and collectors.
While we were unable to gather for our 2020 Gala, we are excited to announce the launch of our Fund a Cause: The Outdoor Learning Center. To watch our Fund a Cause Campaign video and find out how to support, please visit the link below.
The Endless Summer Party is hosted by the Junior Board of The Faison Center and all funds raised go directly to support the life-span of services that Faison provides for individuals with autism and related challenges. Faison is proud to offer services for children as young as 16 months through adulthood. Over the last year, we have expanded our services in Richmond and in Newport News. We now serve children from 36 jurisdictions. With one in 59 children now diagnosed on the spectrum, the need for Faison's service continues to grow.
