APRIL is Autism Awareness Month

Join Eden iautism monthn celebrating with events and activities! Each year is different, and always creative and fun! A few events are sponsored by Eden, but most are organized by Eden families and friends in the community. In 2016 we “Painted it Forward” at Pinot’s Palette, there were “Dine to Donate,” we were beneficiaries of the “Art for Autism” art auction thanks to the Knights of Columbus, and we gathered around the runway at the Princeton University fashion show, “Fashion Speaks.”

Please let us know if you would like to hold your own event, or discuss ideas. We’re here to help!

30th annual Invitational Golf Outing

Join us at beautiful Fairmount Country Club in Chatham, New Jersey for an enjoyable day of golf. The event has a rich history that dates back to when the late Frank Basile, Eden parent and Wall Street broker, banded together with a group of colleagues to create a charity golf event that would eventually benefit Eden Autism. Frank’s now adult son, Frankie, has attended Eden since the age of five.

Golf Outing 2018

Volunteer activities include selling raffle tickets, setting up the raffle and silent auction tables, assisting with the golf contests, checking-in golfers and sponsors in at the registration desk.


Fundraising opportunities include sponsorships, tickets, foursomes and dinner only tickets.
