YES Day for Autism

Join Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) for the inaugural YES Day for Autism.

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with autism service provider booths; enjoy entertainment including live music and special performances; and other family-friendly activities including games, arts and crafts, face painting, bounce houses, free pumpkin patch and more! Various food vendors will also be onsite.

Through SARRC’s YES Day for Autism, Arizona will proudly celebrate what’s possible when we work together, share resources, and collaborate effectively to say “yes” for people with autism and their families. To top it all off, all dollars raised in Arizona for Arizona.


To signify the 1 in 71 children identified with autism in Arizona, YES Day for Autism is a 71-day fundraising and awareness campaign that kicks off Monday, Aug. 16 (but we encourage participants to get a head-start!). Teams will have the chance to recruit team members and fundraise (score cool prizes along the way!) during the 71 days leading up to our in-person community event on Sunday, Oct. 24 at Tempe Beach Park
