Alley-Oop for Autism Success!

Once again we offer our sincere thanks to Peter and Justin Resnick and Joel and Debbie Levine for their support and efforts at Alley Oop for Autism, held Saturday, March 25 in Jericho. Over $90,000 was raised for The Family Center for Autism at this year’s event! The event welcomed Assemblywoman Melissa Miller and New York Giant Jay Bromley as its special guests.

Alley Oop for Autism was created in 2007 by Justin Resnick, a then junior at Jericho Senior High School. Seeking to make a difference in the community, he stumbled upon The Ascent School for Autism and with the help of committee members, volunteers, and generous sponsors he created this remarkable event and continues to work each year to raise funds to support programs for people affected by autism. To date he has raised nearly $1 million for children with autism through the Alley Oop for Autism event.
