Autism Speaks 4 Gabriel

When one of us has difficulty speaking for themselves, we must make it our mission to speak on their behalf. Such is the attitude of the Egidi family who, for their three year old angel Gabriel, the family and their network of friends and supporters have made it their mission to do more than just speak on his behalf. Gabriel was diagnosed with autism and, while he currently has made incredible strides in private therapy, he is on a long waiting list to receive potential government funding to help with the subsidizing of his care. That’s what made the Autism Speaks 4 Gabriel event a must attend for people who want to see kids like Gabriel achieve beyond what was once considered their maximum potential. Over 300 guests were at Riviera Parque on April 26th to help support Gabirel and Autism Speaks Canada during a phenomenal gala evening. With live entertainment courtesy of Victoria Fragomeni, pop sensations 4 Count & others, there was certainly plenty for guests to remember as they showed their support during the event – which also included a sit down meal, silent auction and a host of door prizes. You too can make a difference in Gabriel’s life, just as those in attendance on April 26th. Learn more by visiting and see how a little can go a long way, find out more about event sponsors and maybe even make a pledge of your own.
