King’s Autism Foundation Holds Annual Fashion Show

Sunday afternoon, clergy and ladies and gentlemen of the community got a change to strut their stuff down the runway to raise funds for The King Richard Foundation, Inc.

At Sunday’s fashion show, approximately 200 guests attended the gala and enjoyed a scrumptious dinner of roast beef, vegetables, rice and salad.  Much to their pleasure, the crowd was entertained by singing, the latest fashions, and a line dance performance.

Mamie Hixon, a volunteer with the foundation, gave her personal touch as the Mistress of Ceremony for the occasion.

Ann Richard, the organizer of the event as well as founder of the King Richard Foundation also noted in an email, “The funds from the foundation will go to pay for five African American children to go to Autism Camp this summer.”

Many parents are worried that some vaccines are not safe and may harm their baby or young child. They may ask their doctor or nurse to wait, or even refuse to have the vaccine. However, it is important to also think about the risks of not having the vaccination.

According to The King Richard Foundation’s website, the organization is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to serving individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and other Developmental Disabilities and their families.

Autism is a developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain’s normal development of social and communication skills.

A physical condition, Autism, is often  linked to an unbalanced brain chemistry. Unfortunately an accurate cause of these abnormalities  still continue to remain unknown. Many believe that there may be a plethora of combinations or factors that lead to the disorder.
