On October 10, a little more than a month ago, Mind Shift threw its annual “In Great Spirits” gala. This was the third year for this event, and it was better than ever.
The food was delicious, the drinks were flowing, and the space was filled with friends and well-wishers. The event would not have been a success if it wasn’t for those individuals and those organizations who donated their time, money, and talent.
Thank you to Happy Harry’s for providing the spirits. Thank you to Rosey’s Bistro, Toasted Frog, Altony’s, Déjà vu Catering, and Vexi’s Bakery for supplying us with great food. And thank you to Thunder Coffee for keeping us caffeinated.
Thank you to Dan Christianson for filling the air with music, and thank you to Patrick Kasper for the dance lessons.
A big thank you to Forrest, for your insight into Mind Shift, the inspiration, and for your time. You are a great spokesperson for Mind Shift, and a wonderful example of the power of neurodiversity in the workplace.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who worked before, during, and after the event to keep the party-goers happy and the event moving smoothly.
And of course thank you to the “Mob Families” who sponsored the event. Office Sign Company, Midco, Bell Banks, New York Life, and Killborne Group all made the night possible.
And thank you to all who attended. It was your laughter and energy that brought it all together. And it is your support that will keep Mind Shift working to find great careers for people on the autism spectrum. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Let's do it again next year!
