Recent Children of Promise Golf Tournament a Success, Raises Funds for Children with Autism and their Teachers

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. - EntSun -- The New England Center for Children® (NECC®), a global leader in education and research for children with autism, announced today that the annual Children of Promise Gala will be held virtually on Friday, Nov. 20. The Gala follows the successful Children of Promise Golf Tournament held Oct. 19 that raised more than $51,000 to support the Center.

"The Children of Promise Gala is NECC's keystone fundraising event of the year," said Vincent Strully, Jr., Founder and CEO of NECC. "While we are disappointed that COVID-19 prevents an in-person event, we are grateful for the generosity of our sponsors who remain committed to helping our students even in this new format. It's a great opportunity for us to showcase the outstanding work being done with a wider audience than we can accommodate in the ballroom at the InterContinental Hotel in Boston."
