Casino Night 2017 @ The Waddell Home

Please join the OAR staff and friends for a Casino Night Benefit for the Organization for Autism Research on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at the home of Theresa and Christopher Waddell in Arlington, VA.

The Waddells have two children on the autism spectrum and have been active for years with OAR, the Arlington Special Education PTA, the Autism Society of Northern Virginia, and the broader autism community. Together, they have competed in RUN FOR AUTISM events of all distances in cities such as San Antonio, New York City, and Washington, DC.

All gaming is for fun only, but there will be a 50/50 raffle as well as a silent auction. Champagne and desserts will be served. Contribution of any amount accepted at the door. Event expenses are privately underwritten; 100% of your contribution will benefit OAR.

Please RSVP to (703) 801-2107 or by February 22, 2017.

In order to make this event an even bigger success than last year, OAR is looking for in-kind donations to offer as auction items. Volunteers to be blackjack, roulette, and craps dealers are also needed. If you or anyone you know are interested in helping, please contact Kristen Essex at (703) 243-9717 or via email.
