Miriam Foundation is pleased to announce the success of its 6th annual Art Auction for Autism held on June 7, 2016 at Parisian Laundry.
Over 150 people came out to enjoy the dinner and live auction benefitting the Miriam Foundation’s early intervention services. The generosity of attendees and artists made the evening’s accomplishments possible.
Some of the evening’s highlights included the sale of a painting by John Little entitled Goelettes St-Joseph de la Rive for $10,500 and the sale of a painting especially painted for the occasion by Gilles Labranche entitled Pine x. St. Laurent Blvd for $2,200.The Miriam Foundation would like to thank everyone who participated in making the art auction an evening to remember!
The evening’s proceeds will help support early intervention services for children diagnosed with autism. Research has proven that early intervention for children with autism is of critical importance. Unfortunately, once diagnosed, children are subject to long waiting lists to receive services, often becoming too old for public services before their names reach the top of waitlists. In response to this problem, the evidence-based Abili-T Program was created to provide immediate treatment for these children – and it requires sustained recurrent funding.
