Options for All holds 10th Annual Taste of our Community in Liberty Station
LIBERTY STATION (KUSI) – The 10th Annual Taste of Our Community will be held on Thursday, March 14, 2019 from 6:00p.m. – 9:00p.m. at BRICK in Liberty Station.
The event celebrates a decade of fundraising for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in San Diego. It features tastings from local top tier restaurants, specialty cocktails, wine and beer tasting, live entertainment, auctions, and more.
The organization serves as many as 1,300 individuals annually who face the challenges of autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, hearing and vision impairments, learning and intellectual disabilities, and severe behavioral disorders.
Over the past 20 years, there has been a huge increase in people diagnosed with autism. The U.S. Center for Disease Control in 2014 stated that one in 59 children is diagnosed with autism – making a huge demand for services across their lifespan. We are just beginning to see the increase now, in the adults we serve.
