Hope in Action

The 19th annual Autism Shines Gala was attended by over 300 guests who came to celebrate the children and adults on the autism spectrum.  Guests were amazed by the packages in the silent auction which were generously donated by area retailers and businesses.  JOX Roundtable personalities Jim Dunaway and Ryan Brown emceed the event, called the auction and brought laughter to the crowd with their dry wit and humor.
