Art Now for Autism - Reverse Auction in progress!

Reverse Auction October 1-10, 2009

We all know someone who has been touched autism. Claudine Intner is among them. When her son was diagnosed with autism, she decided to take action. From the Art Now for Autism website, she writes:

"How ART NOW FOR AUTISM started…

My name is Claudine Intner, and I am the organizer of Art Now for Autism. Four years ago our son was diagnosed with autism. We had struggled for a few years prior trying to figure out what was going on with him. It was devastating. As we worked to find him the best education and services, we decided we wanted to do more to defeat autism and prevent other children and families from having to go through this."

You can read all about her efforts here.

One of the biggest fundraisers she conducts each year is an auction of artwork. This year she is running a Reverse Auction, currently in full swing. The artwork varies amongst all mediums and is not to be missed! Visit the auction pages here to find a piece that will not only grace your home but help raise money for autism research!
