Exciting News Alert!

We're thrilled to present an incredible opportunity to enhance your impact on Avondale House. A generous anonymous donor has committed to matching $400,000 of gifts (excluding Avondale House fundraising events) received through September 2024. However, we must first raise $400,000 ourselves during this period to receive this generous match. Your contribution is vital in helping us achieve this target and effectively double the support we can extend to those in need of our services!

This means that every contribution you make will have double the impact, allowing us to make an even greater difference in the lives of those we serve. Together, we can unlock the full potential of this matching challenge and maximize our impact on our community.

Join us as we work towards our goal and create meaningful change together! Your support means the world to us, and we can't wait to see the incredible impact we'll achieve together. Let's make every dollar count!

We extend our deepest gratitude to all sponsors, donors and attendees who rallied to support Avondale House and raised crucial funds for our programs.

Under the incredible leadership of co-chairs Emily and Allen Capps and Ashley and Christian Nelly, the event surpassed our fundraising goal and raised over $345,000! Guests enjoyed an unforgettable special performance from Nashville's #1 Hit Singer-Songwriters, Phillip White, Mark Nesler, Leslie Satcher and Jenn Schott and a phenomenal opening performance from Luke Morace. Guy Buckley, our mission moment speaker, pulled at everyone's heartstrings in his touching speech. We honored Cadence Bank for their immense generosity and support for our mission. Lucky guests took home the stunning Amethyst Wing Earrings donated by Sannam W Jewelry, "Western Wonders" paintings created by our adult participants Ian and BJ, a one-of-a-kind guitar signed by many country music legends and handwritten lyrics from Rascal Flatts smash hit "I'm Moving On" written by Phillip White and D. Vincent Williams, and TWO adorable white lab puppies from Dog Lab TX. Thank you to Emcee and Auctioneer Johnny Bravo for making it such an extraordinary and magical evening!

Thank you to all for your amazing generosity that helps us to ensure that individuals with autism receive the care they need to develop to their fullest potential. Together, we are paving the path towards a brighter, more inclusive future.

It's not too late to donate and show your support for our programs! Every dollar raised will help us continue to grow and support more individuals with autism.
