Impact OASIS, a charity dedicated to creating sustainable farms for autistic young adults, invites you to share in celebrating our achievements to date and enjoy an evening of great food, drink, dancing, and auctions to help create more success in the future. The Fifth Annual Green Ball will be held at Trump National Golf Club, One Trump National Boulevard in Colts Neck, New Jersey. It begins at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 20. The accomplishments of New Jersey's first farmstead are credited to family, friends and the community who sponsor, contribute donations for the silent auction baskets and come to this fun and festive event. Impact OASIS is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote inclusion and acceptance of autistic individuals into their local communities by establishing farm centers that provide meaningful work, peaceful and healthy residences and community interaction. OASIS means Ongoing Autistic Success in Society and was created one hundred percent by the input of families and parents based upon their children's needs and desires. This farmstead program is located on the old Coe estate in Middletown and was acquired through a partnership of Impact OASIS, Middletown Township, the Monmouth Conservation Foundation, Green Acres and the NY/NJ Baykeepers. Our fifth annual Green Ball commemorates the Year of the Dragon, a sign of energy and power. There is positive energy from helping autistic adults achieve their potential, and power from seeing them obtain skills. Mai Cleary, President of OASIS Farms articulates, "People with autism are so special and so unique that we have made it our life's work to be around them and to share that little known fact with others. Autistic individuals are so misunderstood because they face huge language and social barriers. When you get to know them; their intelligence, honesty and bravery are just refreshing." The OASIS farm is a beautiful setting to learn that we all have more similarities than differences. It's about a place full of love and support. Individual Tickets are $175. Corporate and Individual Sponsorship opportunities are available at a range of levels starting at $1750. See our Facebook page at facebook.com/OasisFarms and visit www.impactoasis.org.
