Important Update: 2021 Michigan Shines for Autism Gala

Over the past few weeks, we have watched the Delta Variant with a close, cautious eye. We have engaged in numerous conversations and surveys with key stakeholders including staff, board members, families and sponsors to discuss levels of comfort and contingency plans.

After much thoughtful consideration, we have decided to host a modified virtual event on September 11th in celebration of the Autism Alliance of Michigan and the community we serve. While we are disappointed that we cannot engage with each of you in person, we deeply appreciate your commitment to AAoM.This modified hour-long virtual event will feature compelling and unique stories, presentations, and messages from the safety of your home. In addition, we will have an online silent auction with exciting packages to bid on. Your support is critical this year as we launch the journey towards our Moonshot. We have a goal of raising $1M and we won’t let COVID detract us from it!

In addition to the virtual event on September 11th, we are excited to announce the 2022 Michigan Shines for Autism Gala will return to April – National Autism Acceptance Month. We are committed to honoring sponsor benefits and existing ticket sales for our April 2022 gala. Thank you for your understanding.
