Tickets are now on sale for A Night for Autism Gala
With live entertainment by the Broadsway, this will be a night to remember! Their repertoire ranges from Gershwin to Gaga, from Sondheim to Schwartz and virtually anything – and everything – in between. With a marvelous musical meshing, and a healthy dose of humour, “Broadsway” truly does have something for everyone.
This evening will include appetizers, a delicious 4-course dinner, an evening of live entertainment, a silent auction, and recognition of those who have supported our Chapter. Our Master of Ceremonies will be actor, comedian and columnist Neil Crone.
Corporate rates are available. For more details and to purchase tickets visit the Gala website here.
