In honor of Autism Awareness Month, Nitehawk is excited to present a screening to shine light on the fact that one in 59 American children are affected by autism. Our program highlights the resources needed to support healthy and fruitful lives for young adults living with autism. Please join us to screen the 2016 award-winning film, Swim Team.
What would you do if your community gave up on your child? The parents of a boy on the autism spectrum take matters into their own hands, forming a competitive swim team, recruiting teens on the spectrum and training them with high expectations and zero pity. Watch the extraordinary rise of the Jersey Hammerheads, capturing a moving quest for inclusion, independence, and a life that feels winning.
A portion of the ticket & specialty cocktail sales will go to benefit for NEXT for AUTISM.
NEXT for AUTISM transforms the national landscape of services for people with autism by strategically designing, launching, and supporting innovative programs.
