Art auction for autism raises over $150,000.
On October 19th, more than 120 guests attended a live auction benefitting the Miriam Foundation for their 11th installation of the Art Auction for Autism. 27 pieces by 25 accomplished artists and a dozen paintings by the participants of Miriam’s Recreational and Therapeutic Arts program were auctioned off at Maison-Alcan.
The $150,000 raised will benefit the Miriam Foundation, which supports the development of subsidized clinical services, innovative intervention programs and adapted activities for people living with a neurodevelopment disorder, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or an intellectual disability (ID).
