The stay-at-home order caused the cancellation of AutismUp's Gala & recent celebrity fundraiser. So, what what do you do when life gives you lemons? Gather some friends & put a "lime twist" on it!
I'm taking part in a "Cinco de Mayo Recipe Challenge" to coincide with the National Day of Giving to support non-profits affected by COVID-19 on May 5th.
Check out my recipe, gather the ingredients & try out my margarita! If you like what you taste, how about making a donation for my team to support AutismUp?
Donations support AutismUp's Emergency Fund Campaign to ensure AU can provide support & services to 2,500 member families living with autism. Especially as families are in their most challenging time losing routine, structure, necessary supports, and skill development at the same time parents become teachers, therapists and advocates on top of working and parenting. Myself and AutismUp, are very grateful for any support you can provide, especially if it gives me bragging rights as the winner of the Cinco de Mayo Recipe Challenge!
Thank you for your support! Share with your friends! And Enjoy!
