Action in Autism - Wonderful and Wacky Tea Party Fundraiser
Action in Autism is honouring autistic women and all the wonderful moms, grannies, sisters, aunts and caregivers who support autistic people during Women’s Month. A Wild and Wacky Tea Party Fundraiser will be held at the Action in Autism Centre on Saturday 24 August from 2pm to 4.30pm featuring music duo Sonny Skies, with Sibo Mensa on lead vocals and Sandile Ndokweni on guitar, who together create a unique, light and playful sound. Inspired by their appreciation of Jazz, RnB and Soul, these inspirational young musicians are becoming known for their catchy covers as well as their original isiZulu compositions.
All moms, caregivers, or anyone who would love to support the Centre and autistic people are welcome to attend. Along with the music, attendees can enjoy a high tea and relaxing mini manis, pedis, and shoulder massages, and should dress to express their most wonderful, wacky self to win a prize. The event is free to single mothers of autistic children, and the organisation is appealing to the public for sponsorship for these special ladies.
The Action in Autism Centre in Parkhill, Durban, a non-profit organisation, provides support, learning and resource to autistic people, their caregivers and families. Included in the services offered are a free, walk-in resource and support service, a free diagnostic clinic, regular support group meetings and functions, and an Early Intervention Centre for thirty-two children between the ages of 2 and 6 years.
Action in Autism does not receive any funding from government, and welcomes support through cash or kind, or through volunteering. Tickets for the event are R150, and available from the Action in Autism office.
