Touro University Nevada Hosting “Season of Lights” Soiree to Benefit Center for Autism & Developmental Disabilities
Touro University Nevada (TUN) will host its third annual “Season of Lights” event and silent auction at the Eglet Advocacy Center. Funds raised from this event are awarded to families in the Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities to help offset the cost of treatment services so finances are not a barrier to provide the much-needed care their children need. For many families, a diagnosis of Autism can be life-altering and comes with considerable costs for services.
The Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities will present its “Touro Luminary Award” at the Seasons of Lights event. This award is given to those that make a tremendous impact in the lives of families visiting the Center each year. This year, the Center will honor former NBA player Jerome “Junkyard Dog” Williams and the JYD Project as well as parents Gina and Marcus Myers. Williams and the JYD Project host a free basketball clinic for kids at the Center that allowed them to have a day of team sports which many had never experienced. The Myers’ are role-models for other parents of children with autism and have given of their time to help the Center educate the Southern Nevada community on issues parents face when managing autism.
Attendees will enjoy cocktails and delicious appetizers as they support the current and future families of The Center. A silent auction featuring a collection of artwork, jewelry, and dinner/show packages will also be a part of the event.
