Fashion Show to Benefit Autism Charity

Arts for Autism (photo via Facebook)The annual Arts for Autism gala will take place tomorrow (Saturday) night, featuring art created by autistic individuals and a “New York-style runway fashion show.”

The fundraiser starts at 7:00 p.m. tomorrow at Clarendon Ballroom (3185 Wilson Blvd). The runway show will feature a DJ and models who helped raise money for the event.

From the Arts of Autism web site:

The gala opens with remarks and performances by people in the Northern Virginia autism community, followed by a New York-style runway fashion show featuring model-fundraisers — local students, community leaders, and professional and aspiring models decked out in fine apparel provided by leading designers and boutiques. Throughout the evening, attendees enjoy fine food and beverages, artistic creations on display by autistic citizens of all ages, and great prizes available as door prizes and auction items. Proceeds of this fundraiser will benefit families with programs including the mini-grants offered by the Autism Society of Northern Virginia (ASNV) to pay for treatments and therapies not covered by local or state services.

Tickets start at $75. Students from Marymount University helped to plan the event.
