Autism Connections is a  Pathlight  program.

Autism Connections is Stepping Out for Autism at the Springfield Museum of History on January 27, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. 

You are invited to join us for an evening of food and wine/beer tasting, live music, dancing, and auctions while exploring the museum's exhibits showcasing the stars of Springfield's past!

Rich Tettemer from Springfield's TV Channel 22 guides us through the evening as our host. Seth Mias Catering treats you to a delicious tasting menu, while The O-Tones carry you along with their exciting jazz and Motown. We will be offering some excellent auction items that we hope you will be tempted by in your support of Autism Connections. Attire is semi-formal. 

John Elder Robison, author of Be Different (2011), a how-to guide for grownups with autism; Raising Cubby (2013), the story of raising his autistic son; and Switched On (2016), about his participation as a research subject in brain studies, will be signing and donating 20 of his books at the event!

Stepping Out for Autism, our annual fundraising event, helps raise much needed funds to provide support and resources to over 2,000 families right here in western Massachusetts. Together, we can provide a nurturing network for our community's families, children, teens and adults.

Tickets are $60/person.

If you are interested in volunteering to help on the day of the event, would like to contribute an item to our auction or would like to sponsor Stepping Out, please contact Joanne Lucey.

Thank you to our 2018 Sponsors!
