So yesterday, it rained on our parade.
A fundraiser for our non-profit, HomeLife21, HabCore, and Autism MVP at the Dublin House, had to be cancelled yesterday due to inclement weather.
We will reschedule, and it will take place in the spring.
To say I was disappointed with the weather gods is an understatement.
But the truth is, while I don’t believe everything happens for a reason, I do believe something good can come out of any disappointment, calamity, or tragedy.
I have based my entire life on this premise.
In the spring, I’m hoping hundreds of people who believe in what our three non-profits are doing, namely supporting the lives of autistic individuals, and in our case specifically profound individuals, will gather in the back parking lot of the Dublin House in Red Bank, NJ, listen to a few speeches, drink some beer, and dance their asses off to some pretty great bands.
I’m hoping some people who just like the bands will show up too. The more the merrier.
We will prevail. The autism community always does, because we have to.
The safety, the happiness, the lives of our very children are at stake.
When I get a solid date, I will let all of you know.
In the meantime, I want to thank everyone who has already supported us and who planned to come yesterday. Your kindness means the world to all of us.
Thank you, and see you in the spring!
