MAC’s first annual Autumn ArTea was a huge success! I expect next year will be even better, but first, let’s talk about why it exists and why we hope it keeps growing as a benefit event. The Autumn ArTea was created to benefit My Autism Connection, but not exactly financially, that’s a side benefit. The event was created for MAC members, especially those with a passion for art – for some, it was their first time selling art, and more importantly, their first time experiencing showcasing their art in a gallery-like setting. The artists in attendance had the opportunity to shine, earn money for their hard work, express what their art means to them, and it really showed! We look forward to doing it all again and better than ever in 2020.
