Autism benefit auction Feb. 8

The ISAAC Foundation will hold a benefit dinner, “A Taste of Hope,” Feb. 8 at the Mukogawa Fort Wright Commons. The evening will include food, beverages, music and an auction.

The funds raised will go toward therapy grants for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders.

The ISAAC Foundation began after the death of Isaac Dennis Lytle, a 3-year-old boy who was diagnosed with autism when he was 18 months old.

Early intervention and therapy helped Isaac, but his parents struggled with the staggering costs of therapy.

The fundraiser is accepting donations for the auction. If you would like to make a donation, contact Ashley Potter at 459-1646.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the auction will begin at 7.

Tickets are $25 in advance. Tables of eight can be purchased for $200 or tables of 10 can be purchased for $250.

For more information , call the ISAAC Foundation at 499-1679.
