Pittsburgh Walk Planning Committee:
We have an incredible Walk Planning Committee that meets monthly throughout most of the year to plan for the annual Pittsburgh Autism Speaks Walk. There are a number of subcommittees available: Family Teams, School Teams, Resource Fair and Service Provider Teams, First-Year Teams, Grand Club, Team Village, Corporate Sponsorship, Publicity, Entertainment, Volunteer, and Walk Day Logistics. There’s a place for everyone! We usually meet the 3rd Thursday of every month at 6:30pm.

Chefs Create Pittsburgh Planning Committee:
Do you like party planning? This may be the committee for you! Our annual gala draws over 300 guests each year. We pair over a dozen of Pittsburgh’s finest chefs with an individual on the autism spectrum to create a unique, one of a kind dish in their honor that truly tells a story. An exclusive Silent Auction and basket raffles are just a few of the many exciting features of this prestigious event. Sound like fun?
