Toronto, ON, Friday, April 6, 2018 – www.gcadonate.net. At a fundraising dinner hosted by ICON Digital Productions on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at The School Fine Dining in Markham, ICON raised a total of $35,000 for Geneva Centre for Autism (GCA) programs and services. This generous contribution is a significant milestone in ICON’s dedication to autism support, understanding and inclusion at Geneva Centre for Autism and the Greater Toronto community.
The ICON Dinner Party for GCA brought together over 100 business leaders, philanthropists, community members and autism advocates from across Toronto. Keynote speaker Alex Shifrin, Managing Partner at LP/AD, engaged with the audience on the need for diversity and inclusion in the workplace and society as a whole. The evening ended with an impromptu live auction that got the crowd on their feet.
“At every turn the team at ICON seeks an opportunity to support our mission, and because of this Geneva Centre for Autism is able to further our mission of community inclusion, greater specialized support, and answering the diverse needs of our community,” said Abe Evreniadis, Chief Executive Officer of Geneva Centre for Autism.
