Autism Advocacy: “The Family Perspective”
December 10th 6:30pm
Bellecourt Place, 120 N. Jackson, Belleville, IL
Cindy Guthrie, from the Illinois Center for Autism, will explain the treatments for children with Autism. In addition, Wendy Arneson and Kathy Turner will give us a “family perspective”, sharing their experiences parenting a child with Autism.
Members will receive an Evite invitation. When you RSVP, you are considered “a guest” and you can bring additional guests with you. For example, an individual is 1 guest. An individual bringing a friend is 2 guests. We will include a “What to bring list” if you would like to donate to a needy family caring for a child with Autism. Please wrap your gift and include a gift tag with the recipients name. Add a sticky note on the outside with a description of the selected item from the list. If all the needed items are filled, gift cards for grocery stores or restaurants are always great!
Cost of the dinner is $28. We must receive your RSVP and payment by Dec 1st. Please mail a check payment for you and any guests, made out to Women4given, PO Box 296, O’Fallon, IL 62269.
Thank you in advance for your incredible generosity!
