Press Release - 11th annual Art Auction for Autism


Miriam Foundation’s Annual Art Auction for Autism is back for its 11th edition featuring the works of over 20 artists


For immediate distribution

Montreal, September 5, 2023 - The Miriam Foundation is proud to announce the 11th edition of its Art Auction for Autism, to be held on October 19th at the prestigious Maison-Alcan, in Montreal. This unique and not-to-be-missed fundraising event will enable the organization to raise the funds needed to support the development of its clinical services, innovative intervention programs and research activities. Through its independent fundraising activities, Miriam can support and help individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders, such as intellectual disabilities (ID) and autism.


"This event is a unique opportunity for us to come together in celebration of art and community. Each year this event helps us make a lasting impact in the lives of our clients. We are very thankful to our committee and our community for their support," says Warren Greenstone, President and CEO of the Miriam Foundation.


The funds raised will help develop services for children, teens and adults with intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities. Without these donations, it would be impossible for the Foundation to continue its work.


How to take part?

Those interested in participating in this benefit evening will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for $300. The live art auction will be conducted by the unbeatable Lee Haberkorn, host of "Lee in the Afternoon" on Virgin Radio's 95.9. All artworks will be courtesy of the artists. The evening will include a cocktail reception from 6:30 p.m., then a DJ will take charge of the evening's entertainment.


Corporate and individual sponsorship opportunities are available, according to four types of packages. Individual tickets and sponsorship details are available on the Miriam Foundation website.
