In Spectrum Services sibling groups, the siblings of the special needs children get to talk about how their lives have been affected by the autism disorder. They can express their frustrations and concerns with other children that are going through it at the same time… The children in these groups also get to know what it is like to have autism.Ellen

2013 “Bridge to the Future” Auction and Dinner:A Beautiful Evening and An Overwhelming Success
Our News

Spectrum Services Foundation wishes to thank our generous sponsors and supporters; our donors and guests; Auctioneer, George Cole;  the management and staff of Wiltwyck Golf Club; and everyone else who helped make our signature fundraising event of this year such a success. An enjoyable time was had by all, and we’re so grateful to our many volunteers who worked tirelessly behind the scenes tending to the details, large and small.

Some highlights of the evening included our Co-Founder and Center for Spectrum Services Program Director, Jamey Wolff, sharing her reflections about the programs we provide to our students and the growth we see the children experience from one year to the next. Next, Susan  Buckler, our Co- Founder and Administrative Director, shed light with her perspective on having started our school alongside Jamey more than 37 years ago in the basement of a church with 2 students and the ever exciting progress – and challenges that need to be overcome –  endemic  to our field that continues to evolve within a changing landscape of education policy and politics.

Foundation Director, Laurie Rich, graciously thanked our underwriters and sponsors of the event and highlighted our Honorees. She also proudly shared proclamations from several elected officials including Dutchess County Executive, Marcus Molinaro;  New York Senator, Cecilia Tzaczyk;  and New York Assembly Member, Aileen M. Gunther, all of whom could not attend our event, but wished to publicly acknowledge the positive impact of Center For Spectrum Services within the Hudson Valley.

We were so pleased to have our Corporate Honoree, Prestige Toyota of Kingston represented by Holly Conway, with us to publicly acknowledged the work Prestige and its staff does in support of many local not-for-profit agencies, including Center for Spectrum Services.

Our long-time friend and supporter, Ulster County Executive, Michael P. Hein and his wife, Christine, shared in the great energy of our celebration as he graciously accepted our genuine appreciation for his, and his administration’s  partnership with us over the years. He truly understands the work that we and our dedicated staff and professionals do each day with, and on behalf of, our students and their families.

The culmination of evening’s presentations was the viewing of our Center for Spectrum Services video, produced by  Roger Rosenbaum and his caring and talented team at Rosenbaum Media Group. It tells the Spectrum Services story in the most beautiful way possible, through a glimpse into the lives of our students while at our school. It’s a story that speaks for itself, and we  are so proud to share in the education and support of our students as they strive to achieve “little miracles” each and every day of their lives.

From bidding on any of our 90 Silent Auction items, to the fun in the ballroom during an exciting Live Auction run by none other than Auctioneer Extraordinaire, George Cole, and his team, there was something for everyone. Our guests enjoyed friends old and new, and we could not be more pleased to have hosted such a perfect celebration of more than 37 years of growth of Center for Spectrum Services’ programs, services, and our precious students.
