Last Wednesday evening the York Harbor Inn opened its heartwarming doors to the Blue Light Autism Awareness Fundraiser. The event was complete with food, drinks, dancing, open auction and a silent auction. Yet these were all invisible to the love and understanding in the room. Everyone had a wonderful time; the staff who volunteered and made everyone feel at home, the parents and their children were relaxed and having fun and most important funds were raised for Autism research.
As a volunteer the event made me realized your experience; a stroke; aphasia; brain injury; people are willing to support you and make you feel less isolated and learn to enjoy life again. At some point there will be an Aphasia Awareness event and I can only hope is will be as successful as the Autism fundraiser.
