|Welcome to Tropical Nights!|
Tropical Nights will take place on Saturday, May 9th 2015, at the InterContinental Miami. This year Dr. Rod Wellens, University of Miami Psychology Department Chair, will receive the CARD Community Leadership Award for over 20 years of support and commitment to CARD and the South Florida autism community. Our featured artist is Justin Canha, a high school student with autism, with a gift for drawing. He is a gallery artist at the Ricco Maresca Gallery in New York City.
Our mission is all about "You + I" and what we as families, friends and community partners can accomplish together to make our community a better, more inclusive place for people affected by autism and related disabilities. Today, CARD serves over 7,600 families registered in Miami-Dade, Monroe and Broward Counties. Last year alone, over 700 new families came to CARD for help.
We hope you will help us in our efforts to continue to support and expand our valuable services and programs. Join us for a spectacular tropical-themed evening and that you will dance the night away while we raise money for CARD and increase Autism Awareness.
