New York Families For Autistic Children
By Dr. Geraldine M. Chapey

New York Families For Autistic Children’s 4th Annual Dinner

New York Families for Autistic Children will be holding their 4th Annual Dinner Dance at Russo's on the Bay at Crossbay Boulevard and 163rd Avenue on Thursday, February 28, 2002 at 7:30 P.M.

Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, the Dinner Chairman cordially invites you to join us.  Tickets are $75.00.  For further information or to make reservations please call (718) 641-3441 or 5317.

New York Families for Autistic Children has a very energetic President, Andrew Bauman.  Andrew reaches out nation wide to provide an outstanding program to help autistic children and their families.  Andrew Bauman has had many meetings with our Senators Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton.  Through those personal contacts he has secured important benefits for autistic families.

I am proud to announce that I have been invited to join the Professional Advisory Board of New York Families for Autistic Children.  With my doctorate, my experience as a tenured full professor of psychology at KCC/CUNY, with my extensive number of publications and my world wide presentations at scholarly conventions I will bring my expertise to assist in this very important cause.  I look forward to joining this worthwhile endeavor.

At this years dinner, my mother, Dr. Geraldine D. Chapey, a member of the N.Y.S. Board of Regents and Professor at CUNY and I will be honorees.

Also to be honored are Lee Grossman, President of the Autism Society of America; Gavin Saladino, President of Technoserf Interactive; Sandy Levine, Executive Director, Autism Foundation of New York; Independent Bikers of Queens, Toys for Tots Inc.; Mark Weprin, New York State Assembly Member.

We have attended the last several annual dinner dances at Russo's celebrating the accomplishments of the New York Families for Autistic Children.  Andrew Bauman and his wife Pamela are a dynamic duo.  They are sincerely dedicated to their important mission.  At last years dinner, Andrew and Pamela had directed and presented an excellent video demonstrating the many outstanding activities that they are sponsoring for autistic children and their families.  Andrew and Pamela Bauman bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to further their cause.  They are tireless advocates.  They work to ensure and provide quality services to parents, siblings and family members of those children affected by autism.

One of the main ways in which you can assist Andrew and Pamela Bauman to continue and expand their activities on behalf of autism is to support the dinner at Russo's. This is a very worthwhile endeavor.
