YES Day for Autism!

First Place

Around the time Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) was founded, the incidence of an autism diagnosis was 1 in 500; today it is 1 in 54.

This year, our Team is participating YES Day for Autism to raise critical autism funding not only for SARRC but for other nonprofit autism organizations throughout the state as well. Importantly, all dollars raised will be kept in Arizona for Arizona
YES Day for Autism is as much about saying “yes” to autism awareness, support, and inclusion as it is to saying “yes” to statewide collaboration. Every dollar raised will help the state expand from Phoenix as “the most autism-friendly city” to Arizona as “the most autism-friendly state.”

Join the First Place Team at YES Day for Autism, a family-friendly fundraising event on Sunday, October 24 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. YES Day includes an autism resource fair, kid zone, entertainment, pumpkin patch and much more! If you join the First Place team, 50% of your donation goes to First Place and 50% goes to event host SARRC. Donate a minimum of $75 and pick up a First Place YES Day T-shirt at our event booth on Oct 24!
