Charity Driven By Women Supports SJ Autism Centre

At the fourth 100 Women Who Care event in Saint John,   the Community Autism Centre got a cheque for over $25,000.

The centre is a room at Woodlawn school that serves over 1400 famillies on an annual budget of $35,000.

Lori Bunnell tells CHSJ News they offer support, mentoring and one on one counselling.

She says they are there to answer the phones when parent's receive their child's diagnosis and they don't know where to turn and feel their world is at an end.

The other finalist charities were the Cherry Brook Zoo and Key Industries.

100 Women Who Care is now 280 women strong and the event tonight at the Lily Lake Pavilion had a big crowd.

The next 100 Women Who Care event in Saint John is coming up in June.
