A huge thank you to everyone who came out Saturday night to support the autism community! It means so much to our family and so many others. Thank you to everyone who volunteered, to everyone who bought tickets, to those who drove far to be there (esp the Hauppauge crew!), to everyone that donated, to all that helped clean up, and to everyone that made an effort to somehow make a difference for our kids. It was an awesome night!

NSASA families Jill Downing, Tom Emde, and Gavin Emde and Christa, Jack, Jimmy, and Nicky Lucarelli took part in a very special video for NSASA which was featured for the first time at the event:
