All proceeds will benefit our programs, including the ground breaking Autism Program Improvement Project, which is led by Monmouth University's Department of Education. That program, which is now in its third year, provides enhanced training to area public school teachers and paraprofessionals who have students with autism. This is the only known program of its kind in the country where in-school, autism-focused training is provided at no cost to a district or teachers. Proceeds will also benefit our newly-formed scholarship program with Monmouth University's Department of Education. Scholarships will be awarded to exemplary graduate students who are pursuing a career to work with individuals on the autism spectrum.

FOURTH ANNUAL BREWING AWARENESS FOR AUTISM FUNDRAISER IS FRIDAY, APRIL 26
Thanks to the generous support of area businesses and members of the local community, the Autism MVP Foundation raised more than $21,000 at its fourth annual "Brewing Awareness for Autism" on Friday, April 26.
Food, drink, dancing and live music from classic rock cover band King’s Highway kept the energy up all night long at the Salt Creek Grille in Rumson. The night’s activities also included great auction items to bid on, including a gallery of photos taken by young students with autism called “Through a Different Lens.”
In addition to all of those who attended or made a donation around the event, the night was made possible by sponsors Circle BMW, Circle Hyundai, Hackensack Meridian Health, Barger & Gaines, Wegman’s of Ocean and 94.3 FM The Point, as well as a generous donation from Jimmy's Kids.
All proceeds benefited the Autism MVP Foundation’s initiatives, including the Autism Program Improvement Project and our scholarship program, both with Monmouth University.
Through the foundation’s scholarship program, three graduate students in Monmouth’s School of Education each received $2,500 scholarships in 2018-19. This year’s recipients were Jennifer Blair, Emily Bloodgood and Joseph Tonetti. Each student is dedicated to pursuing a career to enhance educational, social and daily-life skill outcomes for individuals who have autism.
Our all-volunteer organization is looking to grow both of these programs, so if you could not attend the event but would still like to make a donation, please visit our fundraising page.
Also, be sure to keep an eye out for details on our 5th annual Walk Event, which is set for Sunday, November 3.
Thank you for your interest and support!
