The 2nd Annual Illuminate DC hosted by Autism Speaks to Young Professionals (AS2YP) – Washington, DC featured a blues night out at the DC venue Look Supper Club. With a live jazz band, open bar, buffet, and silent auction, it was a beautiful evening as guests came dressed in blue to illuminate the night's Light It Up Blue theme.
Autism Speaks President Liz Feld addressed the crowd and thanked this year’s Silver Sponsors, The Garchik Family Foundation and the Parvizian Family, and Bronze Sponsors, Chesapeake Bay Ventures, Civitas Public Affairs, KPMG, Merrill Lynch and Total Wine & More.
Special thanks to this year’s Autism Speaks to Young Professionals committee for coordinating this event to benefit Autism Speaks, and thank you to all guests who attended and supporters who donated and helped make this event possible. Looking forward to next year’s Illuminate DC!
