Registration is now open for the Scott Center for Autism Treatment’s 10th annual An Evening of Hope fundraiser. The event will be held Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, at the Merritt Island home of Florida Institute of Technology Board of Trustees member Mike Shah and his wife, Rashmi, both longtime supporters of Florida Tech and the Scott Center.
This special anniversary celebration honors Ed and Cheryl Scott for their role in the creation of the Scott Center, which provides children, youth, and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) a place to go for a range of evaluations and services.
The event will also feature the unveiling of exciting new technology that will allow the Scott Center to offer its services to countless more families affected by ASD.
Fundraising efforts also include a raffle of an $8,450 Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-MASTER II donated by Kempf’s Jewelers. Raffle tickets are available for a suggested donation of $25 each at the Scott Center or Kempf’s Jewelers, 336 Fifth Ave., Indialantic.
Last year’s event raised $145,000, and organizers hope to exceed that amount this year.
