Mark your calendar and slip on your party shoes! Morgan Autism Center –MAC– will host the sixth-annual Starry Starry Night gala celebration April 6th at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.
MAC will present the 2013 Outstanding Leadership Award to the Reverend Peter Pabst, President of the Sacred Heart Nativity School and Our Lady of Grace Nativity School. Past honorees have included Anna and Albert Wang and Dr. Ruth Cook of Santa Clara University.
The evening will feature artwork created by MAC students and include a festive wine reception and dinner. Guests will have a chance to bid on auction items of all shapes and sizes, including tickets to a taping of “Dancing with the Stars” in Los Angeles and exciting getaways. Tickets go fast and the event sells out every year.
This year’s Honorary Event Chair is Helen Marchese Owen, one of Silicon Valley’s most committed volunteers. Proceeds from this year’s event are targeted to support art and music programs at MAC and for the purchase of electronic communications devices.
Autism spectrum disorder diagnoses are on the rise and have more than tripled statewide in the last ten years. Morgan Autism Center provides the support that students and adult clients need to maximize their potential in a dignified, positive and loving environment.
You’re invited to come out to help support our work. For more information or to buy tickets, visit www.morgancenter.org or call 408.241.8161
