Past Events Hosted on Behalf of ASF:

Erin_cropScoring Goals for Autism Adult Soccer Tournament: Held in Philadelphia, this annual event is organized by volunteers Erin Lopes and Tim Bak who are parents of a 11 year old son with autism. Raising funds for ASF represents hope for their family and every family who has a child with autism. “We wanted to organize an event where people could get a good workout, have some fun and raise some money for autism research,” Lopes said. “Funding autism research is a critical step in finding the answers to why so many children have autism and what treatments will help children living with the disorder.”

AML Bikers for Charity Ride: This 100-mile ride starts in Rockville Center, NY and winds along the coast to the Montauk Lighthouse. Volunteer ride organizer Barry Koch has selected ASF as a beneficiary for two years in a row. This ride has raised thousands of dollars for outstanding charities over the years. “It is an honor to ride in the name of raising awareness about autism. We’re hoping for a big group and to raise lots of money for the cause.”

Ice Cream Social: Getting together for ice cream is always fun and raising money for a great cause makes it even more sweet. The members of the group Undergraduates for Autism Awareness at Yale (USAAY) created an ice cream social at Ashleys Ice Cream in New Haven, with a percentage of the event’s sales benefiting ASF.

Lemonade Stand: Two middle schoolers and one elementary school student created a lemonade and cookie stand in Rhode Island this summer. Their hard work raised $136 dollars to support autism research at ASF. The students donated the funds in honor of their cousin with autism.
