​​The 6th Annual KNOWAutism Gala will be held on Thursday, February 20, 2020 at The Hilton Americas. The 2020 Gala theme, “AS I AM,” is all about the power of acceptance and inclusion.


We will be honoring Hallie Vanderhider with the 2020 KNOWAutism Humanitarian Award for their extraordinary dedication to the betterment of our community and significant contributions to improving quality of life for all. We will also recognize a new group of KNOWAutism Ambassadors selected for their volunteerism, professional leadership, and community service. These Ambassadors will work to promote our cause and serve as advocates for autism awareness.

The evening will include a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, dinner, musical performance by Melissa Manchester, surprise guests, and more. The Gala is our largest event of the year, providing us with the funding and resources we need to carry out our mission to improve the lives of children with autism. By purchasing a table, tickets, or making a donation, you will play an essential role in ensuring the success of this event and the continued expansion of our work.​

This event will be a celebration of community, connection, and collaboration. 
We hope you will join us!
