Last year FAR provided over 25,000 hours of therapy to Hoosier children and families.

Tapas, Wine & Jazz 2017 will feature jazz artist Monika Herzig and Carolyn Dutton with host David Brent Johnson of WFIU. Fine wines from Manolo’s Wines will accompany an original menu.

Autism Speaks was founded on love. The organization was created by grandparents of a child with autism. Their love for their grandson was so great that it became the cornerstone of the world’s leading autism organization…and that love is reflected in the eyes of thousands of volunteers and supporters.

Now it is up to us, the autism community, to keep that love going and growing. And we need everyone to help. You can power the love by fundraising for the Indianapolis Walk.  Please register today.  At Autism Speaks the funds you raise will support our mission to enhance lives today while accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.

Free tickets to the Zoo will be distributed by FUSE at the entrance to the Zoo. Look for our table by the ticket machines under the pop up (left of the Zoo ticket windows). We will give tickets away (no more than 4 per family) only while supplies last, first come, first served! If you miss the free tickets, you will need to pay your own zoo admission.  If you have a zoo membership and don’t need tickets, please stop by our table anyway and get your FUSE button so families can identify each other while we enjoy wandering through the Zoo exhibits!

Note: the animal exhibits and the rides close at 7, so keep that in mind when planning your visit.
