Starry Starry Night Shines Bright

Morgan Autism Center’s annual Starry Starry Night Fundraising Gala took place on May 4th, 2024 at the Crowne Plaza Palo Alto and raised over $310,000! Community partners, supporters, family, friends and staff came together as a community to celebrate the incredible individuals served at MAC. Event attendees enjoyed an elegant reception and had fun participating in our famous wine pull, browsing fine wines, listening to the Lee Watermann Trio, and bidding on marvelous items in our vast silent auction. Guests enjoyed reception wine provided by Gali Vineyards and Joseph George Fine Wines as well as dinner wine provided by Joseph George Fine Wines and R & W Vineyards as they soaked in the Starry Starry Night magic.

Our Executive Director, Josh Drake, and our new auctioneer, Matt Roben, lead an exciting and heartwarming program that included honoring our community partner, the Little Grass Foundation, and hearing from sibling speaker, Jayasree Peri, who also worked at MAC. Matt led a couple of new games, Lucky Line 7 and the Deck of Cards, that created an ecstatic environment leading up to our live auction which raised over $33,000! We concluded the evening with a Fund-a-Need, generating over $68,000 to help us purchase new vehicles to transport our students and clients into the community to practice everyday skills.

Doubling the Results: Move-for-MAC Fundraiser

Our annual Move-for-MAC fundraiser was a huge success this year, raising more than $106,000 to complete our Farm-to-Table Program. This year the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office and Little Grass Foundation joined the Morgan Autism Center community by creating their own pages, spreading the word within their networks and committing to move in whatever form they chose to help raise funds. On top of that, we had a generous donor whose contribution allowed us to match every dollar we raised above last year’s $50,000.

On September 30th we held our first ever Move-for-MAC Festival at Morgan Autism Center with over 120 attendees! MAC family, friends, and community supporters enjoyed pizza from Pizza my Heart and delicious shaved ice from the famous Kona Shaved Ice Truck. Activities included  racing in the obstacle course, a jump house, and face painting  by an amazing MAC staff volunteer. And a special thank you for the 20 event volunteers from  Little Grass Foundation.

On behalf of the entire MAC staff, Board of Directors, and the families we serve, we thank those who contributed to make this year’s Move-for-MAC a victory!
