hillvalley Posted October 31, 2006 Share Posted October 31, 2006 I read about the following fundraiser on dcfoodies website. I am not linked to the fund raiser and do not know the Swenson family personally. That being said, I cannot think of a more worthy cause. Raising a child with Autism includes costs that many families do not face such as speech therapy, behavior therapy, occupational therapy, special equipment and a variety of different doctors and specialist. Educating a child with Autism does not end after they graduate from high school or college. It is a life long process that will change and adapt as the child grows. You can read more about Autism here, here, and here. If you have any questions about educating autisic children or Autism itself please don't hesitate to pm or email me. I was lucky enough to spend 8+ years working with autistic children and learned more from my students that you could imagine. I hope you will consider joining the Washington Chef Club About Nothing as they support a worthy cause: one of their own. Thanks, hillvalley Autism Fundraiser Dinner On Monday November 6th, the Washington Chef Club About Nothing supports one of their own, Jim Swenson, Executive Chef of The National Press Club by throwing a fundraiser dinner.
