The Autism Society of Northwest Ohio is delighted to announce, Urban for Autism, a night of dinner and fun to raise awareness and financial support for our programs that serve individuals with autism, their families, and those who work with them throughout Northwest Ohio.

The featured speaker will be Ohio State Football Coach, Urban Meyer. Urban for Autism will be held on Monday, June 29, 2015, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Hilton Garden Inn in Perrysburg.

Urban for Autism will also have remarks from ESPN basketball commentator, Dan Dakich. The two coaches worked together at Bowling Green State University in the early 2000s, and remain good friends. WTOL’s Jerry Anderson will serve as master of ceremonies. We thank Yark Automotive Group for being our presenting sponsor.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased through www.urbanforautism.org for $150 per person. Tickets include dinner and beer and wine. There will also be a cash bar and the opportunity to bid on items with a silent and live auction. Proceeds will benefit the Autism Society of Northwest Ohio, with Bowling Green Youth Baseball receiving a stipend for securing Coach Meyer’s participation.

The Autism Society of Northwest Ohio was founded in 1968 to provide support, advocacy, and services to individuals with autism and their families. The society’s services include information and referral for families, a summer school program, and training for law enforcement about autism. One in 68 children born today will be diagnosed with autism, a lifelong neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts communication, behavior, and social abilities.
