“Together we can  make a Difference”

Why we celebrate?

Richie Perrone was diagnosed in 2009 and to be apart of a community that will pull together its resources to help children like our son is simply a wonderful act and a great community to be a part of. Every year Autism organizations around the world celebrate the month of April with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events. On April 22nd, 23rd & 24th 2019, Maggie Valley and surrounding areas will host a number of events to raise money to help families understand and live with Autism!
