MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Fraser is an organization helping families dealing with autism and Saturday night is their big benefit – their biggest fundraising event of the year.
This year’s theme is Cirque du Spectaculaire, with entertainment provided by Circus Juventas.
Fraser has been serving children and families for more than 75 years.
“Nationally, the rate of autism is one out of 88 births,” said Chief Development Officer Gary Wagner. “We have many families coming to us for services and we need to do as much as we can to sustain those programs in the community.”
About 800 guests will fill the Hilton in Minneapolis to help raise money.
The goal is to expand past Richfield, southeast Minneapolis and into the suburbs.
