2014 marks the 3rd year Spectrum Designs has been serving the Long Island Autism Community. Just a few years ago we embarked on a very ambitious journey; to sustain a operating business that would offer employment training and fair wages to people with autism.
Today,1 in 68 children has been diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder. There are an estimated 500,000 teens and young adults with autism who will enter adulthood in the next decade looking for work. With fewer resources being allocated to adult services and even fewer businesses able to accommodate the needs of people with autism, many will lead lives of isolation and have minimal opportunities to engage in the workforce.
Spectrum Designs is committed to making a meaningful impact in the lives of those with autism. Since its inception, Spectrum has employed over 30 individuals with autism. We have come so far in such a short amount of time and we look forward to the limitless opportunities the future holds for this thriving organization.
However, we cannot do it without your help. Autism is a lifelong neurological condition. Although there is no cure, there is hope in taking action.
Please join us on Monday September 15 at the exclusive Sands Point Golf Club and help us make a difference in the lives of people with autism. Thank you!

On October 11th, the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) will celebrate its 8th Annual Long Island VisionWalk at Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh, New York. The event is the Foundation’s signature walkathon fundraiser that has raised more than $32 million since its inception in 2006.
Over 500 participants are expected to attend the VisionWalk and will feature fun activities, refreshments, music, inspiring speeches and many more. Your support is critical to not only the Walk but to but to also help those affected with retinal degenerative diseases.
The Foundation’s name says it all—a national non-profit organization on a steadfast mission to fight blindness. Specifically, FFB funds the research that is making possible treatments and cures for retinal diseases that affect more than 10 million people in the United States and millions more around the globe. These conditions cause people of all ages, from newborns to retirees, to lose their sight and, in many cases, go completely blind. As most are inherited, these diseases are passed down within families, from generation to generation.
Thanks to the Foundation’s leadership, innovation and singular focus on eradicating blindness, the future for patients living retinal diseases is bright. Over the last four decades, the Foundation has raised more than half a billion dollars toward its mission, and is funding truly cutting-edge research in a number of promising areas, including gene therapy, stem cells and drug development. In ongoing clinical trials, Foundation-funded scientists are actually restoring sight for people with a rare disease that causes blindness in children. It is this success we are working to replicate for all vision-robbing diseases.
Come and show your support on October 11th!
