Lowcountry Autism Foundation to host Oysters for Autism at Bowens Island

Charleston, S.C. – The Lowcountry Autism Foundation is set to shuck some hot steamy oysters for a cause at the ever-popular Bowens Island Restaurant on Sunday, November 8th from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Tickets may be purchased online prior to the day of the event at www.lafinc.org. Advance  reservations are encouraged.

The menu for the event includes oysters, chili and hotdogs and also includes non-alcoholic beverages. Beer and wine will be available for purchase. The local alternative rock band Bateman’s Stud Farm will provide entertainment, and the event will also feature a silent auction with items ranging from generous gift certificates to businesses in the area to golf outings. In the event local oysters still aren’t ready for pickin’ due to the recent flooding, there will be a sumptuous  Lowcountry Boil at the ready.

Sponsors include Reads Moving System of Carolina, Advanced Animal Care of Mt. Pleasant and Atlantic Pest and Termite Management. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available, ranging from $300 red sponsors to a Presenting Platform/Naming Sponsor level at $3500.

The Lowcountry Autism Foundation’s strives to improve the lives of families living with Autism and other developmental disabilities. They provide clinical diagnostic assessments and programs to support families throughout the lifespan.

Once an individual is diagnosed the family is thrown into a complicated web of therapies and services.  LAF’s goal is to decrease the stress on the family and connect them with every available resource.  Their behavioral intervention and educational support programs match each family with a specialist who creates individualized treatment plans and advocates for what is best for the individual.  LAF’s art therapy and social skills programs provide a safe and fun environment to foster relationships and build emotional intelligence. With a mostly volunteer, multidisciplinary staff LAF has provided over half a million dollars in free autism services, and all funds raised stay in South Carolina.
