For the second year in a row, the Mountaineer Autism Project was one of the charities supported by the event.
As this is my first year as Director of MAP, this was my first time attending the event. The Greenbrier is an amazing facility with magnificent grounds, fabulously decorated interiors, and top-notch hospitality. While The Greenbrier is an experience all in itself, I was most humbled and pleased with the outreach and support I felt from those in attendance this weekend.
I am most accustomed to speaking to people directly affected by autism (parents and professionals), so this was my first “general public” presentation as director, and I couldn’t have asked for a better reception. So many individuals went out of their way to thank me for speaking, and to say that they were thrilled that the Concours D’Elegance would be supporting MAP’s mission.
It was an amazing feeling to have people step up and voice support for our organization and our mission here in West Virginia. It is often easy to support something that directly impacts you or someone you love, but support doesn’t always come easily when a cause seems distant. It was so uplifting and motivating to know that people who weren’t living this autism life each and every day were cheering us on supporting our mission to make ABA services more readily available to children here in the Mountain State.
To each and every person who supported the Mountaineer Autism Project at The Greenbrier Concours D’Elegance this week – thank you so very much! Your continued support will help so many children and their families facing autism in West Virginia.
