Our Spring Event 2012

Feelings in Focus

Spring Fundraising Event: Feelings in Focus
Tuesday, May 15, 2012 — 6:30 Cocktails, 7:30 Program and Dinner

Our spring fundraising event, Feelings in Focus, was held May 15, 2012, at the City Winery at 155 Varick Street, New York City.

The highlight of the evening was our newest New Frontier Program: Fotography for Friendship

Guests were surrounded by a showcase of beautiful, and often touching, photographs taken by our young photographers.

Fotography in Friendship uses a shared interest in photography to promote social skills development in young adults on the autism spectrum. Since 1975, our agency has grown from a few classrooms into a large network of schools, residences, and family support programs located throughout New York City.

Thanks to generous donors and all those who share our passion for caring, Birch is able to continue to provide the the finest education, habilitation, and residential services to people with autism and other developmental disabilities, and continue helping their families overcome the lifelong obstacles they face in raising children with disabilities.


If you were unable to attend, but would like to contribute to this fundraiser, your support is sincerely appreciated.
