DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – There was a great turnout at NorthPark Center Saturday for “Stephanie’s Day,” a special event designed to help families of children with autism.
Children played games with clowns and had their faces painted as parents learned about resources available to help kids with special needs.
“No matter what the age no matter what the situation you’ve got to have hope and this hopefully gives people an avenue to be able to find services and know there are other people out there and to also have support,” said Dr. Carolyn Garver, with the Autism Treatment Center.
The philanthropic event is near and dear to the CBS 11 family; named after former General Manager Steve Mauldin’s daughter. She was diagnosed with autism as a child, but is flourishing now as a 23-year-old adult.
CBS 11 and TXA 21 were proud to celebrate and sponsor the 10th anniversary of the annual event in Dallas.
