The Arts of Autism Runway Show & Gala is an unforgettable night of beauty, fashion, and fun benefiting the Autism Society of Northern Virginia.
The 2016 Arts for Autism Gala will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at The Westin in Alexandria
Tickets must be purchased in advance. Valet parking will be available.
The gala opens with remarks and performances by people in the Northern Virginia autism community, followed by a New York-style runway fashion show featuring model-fundraisers – local students, community leaders, and professional and aspiring models decked out in fine apparel provided by local designers and boutiques. Throughout the evening, attendees also enjoy fine food and beverages, artistic creations on display by autistic citizens of all ages, and an exciting live auction featuring one-of-a-kind items.
The Arts for Autism planning committee and the Autism Society of Northern Virginia welcome anyone with an interest in fashion, art or autism (or all of the above!) to get involved. We welcome anyone with a passion for making a difference and having fun to join us as a model-fundraiser by clicking here to sign up. Designers, boutiques, retailers and other sponsors can gain visibility in front of an affluent, fashion-conscious audience by lending your support through a variety of sponsorship packages. Autistic performers and artists are invited to display your work and talents at the gala. You’re also welcome to join us by buying a table, a ticket, or just making an online donation.

It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 1 minute for your pic to upload, depending on how big it is.
You're going to see this message every time you post a new pic. So, we're making the text really long so that it'll take you at least five picture uploads to read it all. Here's what we're thinking...While your first picture is uploading think about someone you want to kiss. When you upload your second pic think about one friend who you can beat in a race. On your third photo upload think about your favorite food that begins with the letter H. While your fourth picture is uploading think about how great it would be if you were a world class breakdancer. While your fifth picture is uploading try to think of the best candy to eat if you were a mime spending a month in New Zealand. If you upload a sixth and seventh picture please just read all of this again.
We're setting up your Fundraiser page right now. It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 27 seconds.
