SARRC Celebrates Annual Community Breakfast

SARRC Co-founders Denise Resnik and Raun Melmed kick-off the breakfast with opening remarks

On April 28, nearly 1,800 guests came together to celebrate SARRC's Annual Community Breakfast themed Revolution: Redefining the Status Quo

The event, which was co-chaired by long-time supporters Kathy and Mike Bosco, showcased SARRC over the last 20 years and for the first time ever, guests heard from every perspective of the family: parents, siblings and grandparents. Also recognized were seven individuals dubbed ‘SARRC Revolutionists’ including co-founders Denise Resnik and Raun Melmed, MD, who have helped shape SARRC since its founding in 1997.

“There are so many more revolutionists, ordinary people doing extraordinary things, big and small, each and every day, who have contributed to SARRC’s evolution and autism in this community’s revolution,” said Daniel Openden, SARRC President and CEO.  “And just as important are the revolutionists who will help us achieve a vision for SARRC’s next 20 years: a supportive community fortified with the resources to identify, treat, and integrate individuals with autism of all ages.”
