Artistry for Autism a Huge Success!

Our 15th annual Artistry for Autism event was another success!  With over 300 attendees, it was evident that there was a huge outpour of support from our local community, family and friends.  As you walked into our Pleasant Hill location, the warmth radiated the room with the love and support from all.  This year we were able to raise over $25,000 that will be going directly back into our programs!!

This year’s fundraiser was fun-filled with live music, passed hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction, cocktails,  raffle prizes and a new addition this year, a photo booth! Raffle prizes included a grand prize of four round-trip Southwest airline tickets which was generously donated again this year by Southwest.  RES Success participants were very much involved in the preparation and efforts of the event including helping with decorations, cooking the food and serving it as well!

Ian G. Bremner, Executive Director and founder of RES SUCCESS stated,

"This money will go directly to programs and provide our students with services that help them move towards independence and a greater sense of community presence. We want to thank each, and every, person involved with our organization and hope to see many new faces next year. Thank you for your support!"
