For us here at FSU CARD, fall is roaring past in flashes of orange, red, and yellow. As always, there are a number of exciting activities, trainings and opportunities for you and your family in this month’s newsletter:
- We are very excited about the grand opening of the Venvi Art Gallery on November 7th from 6:00 – 9:00 PM (EST) in Tallahassee. The Gallery has donated an original work of art to be auctioned off to raise funds for the FSU Autism Institute. The bidding will begin Tuesday, November 3rd and run through the grand opening on November 7th. The Gallery is donating 100% of the highest bid! In addition to the silent auction, 25% of all sales during opening week will be donated. As an added bonus, several of the winning works of art from FSU CARD’s 2013 and 2014 Artists and Autism exhibitions will be on display during the Gallery’s grand opening week. For more information about this event, visit our website at FSUCARD.com and click “Trainings and Events.”
- FSU CARD is seeking applicants for new members of our Constituency Board. The Constituency Board meets with CARD staff quarterly to provide guidance on policy, priorities, and activities. We are particularly interested in family members and clients from the western end of the Panhandle that are interested in serving on CARD’s constituency board.
