CARD’s 20th Anniversary Celebration in Rochester

On June 4th, CARD’s Rochester location celebrated both CARD’s 20th anniversary and Autism Awareness Day at the Red Wings baseball game at Frontier Field.

Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, founder and executive director of CARD, and four of CARD’s clients threw the first pitches of the game. Red Wings players wore specially designed autism awareness jerseys, which were later signed by the players and auction off. The silent auction raised over $3,800 for Act Today!.

For one inning, Dr. Granpeesheh was invited to sit in the press box, where she commented on the game and provided spectators information about autism. The game received radio and television coverage, and Dr. Granpeesheh was interviewed by the local CBS and Fox networks.

In all, the event was a great success and we are delighted to have celebrated our 20th anniversary, and our 11 years of service in Rochester, with the local community!
