On Saturday, October 25, 2014, generous supporters of PACE came together to celebrate their 25th Anniversary Gala which benefits children and adults living with autism in the San Francisco Bay Area. With an objective of raising $100,000, attendees went above and beyond that goal, committing $110,000 to the organization. The Fund a Need portion of the event alone raised over $25,000 to endow the Marcia Goldman Mission Fund for capital improvements, outreach and programs. NBC Bay Area TV Anchor, Laura Garcia-Cannon served as Emcee at the event.
The funds raised will support PACE’s mission of providing high-quality programs for individuals with autism and its related developmental disabilities. These programs include early intervention therapies, a preschool, a K-12 school and residential group homes.
“This year’s gala represents a major landmark for PACE,” noted Executive Director Kurt Ohlfs. “Twenty-five years of providing services and solutions for the autism community is quite a milestone. We have learned so much and expect the next 25 years will show an even greater expansion of PACE services for the Bay Area.”
PACE debuted a heartwarming video at the event which provides an excellent overview of their services, told by a long-term client’s appreciative parent. You can view the video below.
PACE would like to thank all guests, corporate and individual sponsors, supporters and advertisers who made this event such a great success. Special thanks goes out to Platinum Sponsor, TurnKey Mortgage Solutions. All proceeds from the auction benefit PACE programs and services.
