Just like you, the team at Elpida Autism Foundation have been following the daily updates provided by the Federal, Provincial and Municipal governments regarding COVID-19, and its impact on our world.In these uncertain times, the health and wellbeing of every individual is at the forefront of every major decision that we make going forward.
With that being said, we have concluded that it’s in the best interest of our team members, our vendors, and most importantly our supporters to cancel the Elpida 2020 Gala originally scheduled for Friday, October 23rd.
We are excited to announce the the date for the Elpida 2021 Gala will be Friday, November 12th.
This was a very difficult decision. Our gala is our main fundraising event, and each year it allows us to get closer to our Foundation’s goals. It is also a wonderful evening of fun, friendship and charity.
Our goal as a Foundation is to continue to increase autism awareness and acceptance, provide monetary support for research and development, and to provide much needed support for programs that help young people living on the spectrum the opportunity what they do best in order to live a fulfilled life. Elpida’s ultimate goal is to build a short term respite care facility, and long-term housing.
We are looking forward to 2021, and will be planning a number of other events through out 2020. Details will be announced when finalized.
And last but not least, we would like to thank all the front line workers who have been working since the very beginning of the pandemic, and during these uncertain times.We appreciate all of you!
We would like to thank you for your understanding during these difficult times.
