Autism Aware Fare was launched in 2002 by the Mecklenburg
County Chapter of the Autism Society of North Carolina to raise money and
awareness for autism. We respect and value the uniqueness of all individuals
with autism: when provided the opportunity, each person can make a unique
contribution to their family, community, and society. The Autism Aware Fare
helps raise awareness and funds so people with autism can access these
opportunities to shine.
Over the event’s sixteen-year history our restaurant
partners and sponsors have given tens of thousands of dollars to support local
families through this fun and tasty event.
Society of North Carolina was formed in 1970 by a group of parents who
wanted to build better lives for their children with autism. Today the
organization is one of the largest and most respected autism organizations in
the country, providing support and promoting opportunities that enhance the
lives of individuals within the autism spectrum and their families.
The Mecklenburg County
Chapter of the Autism Society of North Carolina is a supportive community
for people with autism and their family members. Funds raised through the
Autism Aware Fare support chapter activities and grants made by the Chapter to
CMS teachers to assist them in meeting the needs of students with autism.
