Dear Supporters, Friends, and Families,
On behalf of Booker Autism Foundation of Learning, Inc. (BAFOL), we are pleased to announce BAFOL’s Fundraising Dinner on Friday, May 11, 2018, at 7:00 pm, at the KYE’S l, located at 500 Missouri Avenue, Jeffersonville, IN 47130. This year’s theme is “Heart of the Community” and, honors community spirit and partnership that enabled BAFOL to achieve significant milestones over the last year on behalf of our families and children. Over 300 business, civic, national & local community leaders have been invited to gather at the BAFOL Gala to celebrate our collective work in building healthy, thriving Autism families and community.
We ask you to join us as our Fundraising Gala Sponsor. Your support will allow us to reach more vulnerable children and teens with quality programs that change lives and strengthen families. Since 2012, BAFOL has been steadfastly serving the needs of various families in the greater KY, IN, GA, TN area. Last year, over 50 children and adults were served Holiday Gift Bags filled with a dinner, dessert, and toys for Christmas. And, being a 100% volunteer ran and operated organization with no budget, we were able to personally assist families in getting the vital programs and services they needed. Such as: mental health services, child nutrition & wellness services. And, our very own BYC Executive Director and Founder the Hon. Rev. Dr. L. Jasmine L. Booker established a BAFOL BEARS ART CAMP with the Parks & Recreation Departments to collaborate in working with the colleges for Autism Support Activities and Services. As well as a BAFOL PC Lab, in partnership with the YMCA.
We humbly ask for your support on this special night to celebrate the strength, heart and soul of our community. We have attached information regarding our sponsorship levels. All donations will be recognized in our program book, auction table, social media platforms and website www.bafol.org/events.
