D’Angelo’s Hosts the NATALIE FINK ACQUISITION ACADEMY for Autism Charity Event
Natalie Fink wants to help kids, especially kids with autism. For many years I suspect autism was misdiagnosed, but now that doctors have a better understanding of the behavioral condition more and more services are coming on board to assist families and their children. (I have relatives with autism and see first hand how many of these services make a difference in a child’s life)
that individuals and their families need the appropriate services to ensure
that their child with disabilities is provided comprehensive educational
services so that their child can lead independent, healthy and an emotionally stable
life when they become an adult.
Many individuals and families struggle because
they do not know how to access services. It is the goal of NFAA to give children and their families the tools to
lead successful lives and to provide ongoing support to ensure continuity and
consistency in the management of their lives.
Board Members include: George Sfedu, Carlos Hoz De Villa, Christina Fink, Sal D’Angelo, Ben Reiff and David Weathington
Some of these items up for auction are provided by an auction house, where they put a price on the item, then the event organizers do a mark up. The mark up price is the portion that goes to the charitable event. If the item doesn’t sell, the item goes back to the auction house. It’s a very efficient service for a silent auction.
You often get great items, I saw a Barbara Striesand signed CD and photo for $475, very reasonable since she rarely signs as she’s fairly reclusive. There was a Ted Williams signed baseball, it was $525. The best buy of the evening was a signed Sopranos framed poster, signed by the cast. Starting bid only $100. When that show was on the air, it would have sold for $1,000
