With another full house gathered in front of him, WBZ-TV co-anchor David Wade stole the show once again at the 2nd Annual Higashi Gala at Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy. Over 300 friends, families and supporters listened intently as Wade displayed his extraordinary talent, bringing to the audience the perfect blend of knowledge, compassion and humor to the world of autism.
Thanks to all who participated, the evening was a tremendous financial success. We were fortunate to once again have a very spirited, fun-loving and generous crowd. Mr. Wade navigated through the live auction like a pro, keeping the bidders engaged and bringing in maximum dollars for all the items displayed. Revenues in this year’s live auction alone tripled those from last year. Thanks to everyone, we are very excited to announce that we raised over $175,000.
As we enter into our 30th anniversary, we look forward to a full year of celebration and activity. We hope that you will all come along for the ride. Plans are already in place for the 3rd Annual Higashi Gala, scheduled for Thursday, October 12th at Granite Links Golf Club. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
