The Scott Center for Autism Treatment hosted its annual fundraiser, An Evening of Hope V, in Revolution Technologies’ new facility at the Florida Tech Research Park in Melbourne. Over 300 people attended the event which raised more than $225,000 for The Scott Center.

\”The Scott Center is lucky to have an outstanding group of committed community members who work much of the year gathering support for the center and helping to plan the event,\” said Colleen Middlebrooks, Scott Center director of community relations.

Two important community members who helped to lead the center to its most successful Evening of Hope to date were co-chairs Mark Malek and Leasha Flammio-Watson, pictured here.

A special part of the night was WISH sponsorships. A WISH is a $100 pledge to sponsor one day of services for a child at The Scott Center. Over 470 WISHes, or $47,000, were made the night of the event.
