Boynton Beach Grandparents Raise Funds for Autism Speaks

This is a guest post by Autism Speaks Board Member Gary Mayerson. Mayerson is the founder of Mayerson & Associates, the first and only law practice in the nation dedicated to representing children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders.

From its very inception, Autism Speaks has recognized the importance of family support, and the role of the extended family.  Indeed, Autism Speaks was founded by two highly motivated grandparents, Bob and Suzanne Wright.

On February 15, 2011, approximately 150 Boynton Beach grandparents attended a luncheon fundraiser for Autism Speaks, raising more than $10,000 in the process.  They came to listen to Autism Speaks Board Member Gary Mayerson speak about the epidemic-like statistics, and the many ways in which Autism Speaks is addressing the problem.

We wish to thank everyone who attended and, in particular, the following committee members who organized this worthy event:  Gerri Ackerman, Elaine Baranoff, Luba Ditkowitch, Ellen Feller, Harriet Fried, Carolyn Holland, Shirley Meltzer, Mara Lee Nozetz, Rita Rosen, Patty Rosenfeld, Phyllis Spieler, Dee Silverman, Ruth Schwartz, Renee Telsey and Sylvia Zeidman (Gary Mayerson’s mother in law).
