Third-Party Events

Organize an event at work or in the community to benefit Geneva Centre for Autism. It is a great way you and your participants can help children, youth and families struggling with autism get the services they need.

Organizing an event is a lot of fun! You will not only raise funds much needed funds, it’s also a great way to let your family, friends, co-workers and classmates know about Geneva Centre for Autism and the wonderful work we do.

Your fundraiser can be as modest or ambitious as you choose. You can either do it yourself or convince your employer to donate the profits from their golf tournament, walk-run, bike-a-thon, industry recognition dinner or company picnic to Geneva Centre for Autism.

Aecon Buildings GTA Charity Golf Day

Aecon Buildings set to brighten up the lives of young children with autism for years to come

TORONTO, September 2011 – Aecon Buildings became Geneva Centre for Autism’s latest trailblazer by donating $41,900 to help fund the Centre’s children’s building at 164 Merton Street. The generous donation was raised from the annual Aecon Buildings GTA Charity Golf Day held on June 28th 2011. With an ever increasing number of children being diagnosed with autism, the Centre plans to use the donation to create a space for children with autism to learn the essential skills that will enable them to realize their potential.

Now in its 10th year, Aecon Buildings GTA Charity Golf Day attracted 144 enthusiastic golfers. 36 teams made up of Aecon Buildings’ employees and subcontractors teed-off at the fabulous 18-acre Rattlesnake Country Club for a great cause. Frank Ross, President of Aecon Buildings Group says “Aecon Buildings’ fundraising efforts for our Annual Charity Golf Event, are a direct result of the strong and lasting relationships we foster with our subcontractors. We would not have raised the $41,900 for the Geneva Centre for Autism without their dedication to the worthy cause and to Aecon Buildings. We are very pleased Aecon was able to raise funds for much needed programs for children, youth and adults living with Autism”.

The annual tournament is part of Aecon Buildings’ commitment to build closer relationships and have a positive impact on communities where they conduct business. Arlene Mercurio, Executive Assistant to Frank Ross, chose Geneva Centre for Autism as the charity of choice following a suggestion from Adelina Cotognini, who works as a Proposal Coordinator for Aecon Buildings. Adelina whose son, Adamo, has autism has seen first hand what difference proper training can do for a child with autism.

With nothing but praise for Geneva Centre for Autism, Adelina says “I have seen an immense improvement in Adamo’s ability to make friends and socialize after attending Geneva Centre’s Social Skills Building Program. The Program has thought him to how talk and interrelate to his peers, how to share, play and just have fun by being himself”.
