The 2016 Arts for Autism Runway Show and Gala will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the Westin Alexandria. Tickets are now on sale!
The gala opens with remarks and performances by people in the Northern Virginia autism community, followed by a New York-style runway fashion show featuring model-fundraisers – local students, community leaders, and professional and aspiring models decked out in fine apparel provided by local designers and boutiques. Throughout the evening, attendees also enjoy fine food and beverages, artistic creations on display by autistic citizens of all ages, and an exciting live auction featuring one-of-a-kind items.
The Arts for Autism planning committee and the Autism Society of Northern Virginia welcome anyone with an interest in fashion, art or autism (or all of the above!) to get involved. We welcome anyone with a passion for making a difference and having fun to join us as a model-fundraiser by clicking here to sign up. Designers, boutiques, retailers and other sponsors can gain visibility in front of an affluent, fashion-conscious audience by lending your support through a variety of sponsorship packages. Autistic performers and artists are invited to display your work and talents at the gala. You’re also welcome to join us by buying a table, a ticket, or just making an online donation.
