Celebrating the past, present, and future of tennis programs for children and young adults with autism.
We invite you to join ACEing Autism and over 350 of Los Angeles's tennis ambassadors, influencers, and industry leaders to our premier fundraising event on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at The Griffin Club, Los Angeles.
Attendees are expected to include a high-profile group of top business leaders, philanthropists, individuals from the autism community, tennis celebrities and media representatives. The ACEing Autism IMPACT Gala will raise funds and awareness for ACEing Autism's newest program initiative - School Based Tennis Programs. After a successful soft launch in 2018 in two locations in Los Angeles and Boston, ACEing Autism will utilize funds from this gala to expand into eight new schools and serve 200 new children with autism during the 2019-2020 fiscal year.
The ACEing Autism IMPACT Gala will feature special appearances from tennis legend Pam Shriver, Tennis Channel President Ken Solomon, and ACEing Autism Founder and Executive Director, Richard Spurling. Dine under the stars with us and enjoy a high-end silent auction, once in a lifetime live auction experiences, inspiring testimonials, and mingling with other industry leaders and philanthropists.
Come celebrate the past, present, and future of tennis programs for children and young adults with autism as we transform the Griffin Club into an evening to remember!

About ACEing Autism
ACEing Autism is a national 501c3 non profit organization that enhances the lives of children and young adults with autism through unique tennis programs. Founded in 2008 by Richard Spurling, a tennis professional and MBA, and Dr. Shafali Jeste, a pediatric neurologist, ACEing Autism has grown from 1 flagship location in Wayland, MA into a vibrant, volunteer driven organization that serves over 1,500 individuals with autism through 73 program locations in 29 states with the support of over 2,100 volunteers.
The expansion continues, as we are just beginning to meet the needs of the thousands of children and young adults with autism across the country. Our success lies in our commitment to tailoring the program to the needs of each individual with autism, and the passion and dedication of our volunteers, who make our programs possible.
