Our support for this cause is needed now more than ever. Autism Rates are at an all-time high of 1 in 68 children born in this country. From personal experience, at the time of diagnosis we were left in shock and complete despair on how to help our son and where to turn to. Autism Ontario, a non-profit organisation, helped to direct us and many other families with assistance on which government associations to contact, which wait lists to get on for services and what rights families have in the school system.
The amazing people we met over the years, their stories and tears prompted us to do more. To date we have raised over $49,500 with an annual Elite Meat sponsored BBQ. This year we are hoping that an event such as this, with the support of our sponsors, families, friends and community will raise even more. All proceeds raised through this gala will be donated to Autism Ontario so that they can provide children on the spectrum and their families with the support and services they need.
Please join us on April 28th, 2017 to make a difference in the lives of these children!
We at the Elite Meat Company are excited to host the very 1st Annual, “Niko’s Night for Autism” Gala event, April 28th, 2017. This event and charity is near and dear to our hearts as we were personally touched by this diagnosis. Our son Niko’s diagnosis at the age of 2 ½ had opened our eyes to the struggles and lack of funding that families face in this province. Without years of therapy, our son may never have been able to speak the words “I love you” or simply “Mom or Dad”. We couldn’t imagine never hearing those words from our precious son and nor should any other parent with a child on the spectrum.
