November 13, 2013: The AFT would like to extend a very special Thank You to Stephanie Anderson and her friends at The Daymar Institute. Thanks to their recent efforts, they raised $1,250 for the AFT! It’s been a delight getting to know these fine folks, and it would appear the respect and admiration is mutual. The AFT and Daymar are already planning future fundraising events. Thank you, Stephanie for your hard work. On behalf of our families, we thank you so much for your generous donation!
This is Stephanie pictured above with her two sons Jude and Cash as well as our director Rhonda. Stephanie is working hard to raise awareness and funds for the AFT. This is a personal battle for her as a mother. Jude is on the spectrum with Asperger’s Syndrome. We commend her for being an advocate for him and for the other children of the AFT.
Next Tuesday, October 22, Chili’s of Brentwood is supporting the Autism Foundation of Tennessee by donating 10% of their sales to us. There’s never been a better reason to eat at a great restaurant! Go support your favorite organization and make sure you take a copy of the flyer with you so we get the proceeds. Thanks for your support!
