The BIG GIVE Family Fun Day & Vendor Fair

Autism York’s Inaugural BIG GIVE Family Fun Day & Vendor Fair, held on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at Cousler Park was a huge success!  While the day started off stormy, we were blessed with an AMAZING day to hold this fantastic event!  DONATIONS ARE STILL BEING ACCEPTED! CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO AUTISM YORK.

The funds raised will enable Autism York to continue to provide social events, monthly support meetings, teen and adult meet-up groups, a lending library, and resource directories and transition planning guides – all at low or no cost for individuals and families who are living with ASD!

For the first time, we opened our Vendor Fair to both autism and non-autism related vendors and providers. We hosted over 70 exhibitors, vendors and sponsors who each provided a family-friendly activity or giveaway at their vendor table. What a wonderful assortment of activities and giveaways were offered! Many thanks to our vendors who really put the time, effort and energy into providing such creative and fun experiences for our families!

We also encouraged families and businesses to create fundraising teams for Autism York. We had 20 registered teams, including many returning teams and a host of new ones! It was great to see and feel the support of the mission of Autism York in our community!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all who donated, volunteered, sponsored, and attended this event.  This is the only fundraising event Autism York holds for itself, so your support is all the more appreciated!

A SPECIAL thanks to our sponsors, vendors and to our food vendors! This event truly would not be possible without each and every one of you!
