Hear our Voices Event Recap



The Second Annual Embracing Autism, Hear our Voices evening event was an incredible success! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support Avondale House and kindly partnered with us to raise vital funds for our three adult programs. 

The evening chaired by Emily and Allen Capps and Ashley and Christian Nelly welcomed nearly 300 guests and broke Avondale House fundraising records raising a total of $245,000! Guests enjoyed an amazing performance by Nashville's #1 hit singer-songwriters Phillip WhiteMonty Holmes and Kent Blazy, a touching mission moment speech by Kaitlyn Merz, an awards ceremony honoring Houston Methodist and Capital One, a diamond raffle sponsored by IW Marks, an exciting live auction, and more. Thank you to our fabulous duo Katherine Whaley and Kaitlin Monte for emceeing the event!

We are extremely grateful for our generous supporters! Together, we are providing individuals with autism the resources, education and training to develop to their fullest potential.
