Frank Family Vineyards x Autism Speaks

Creating a Kinder, More Inclusive World

For World Autism Month, we wanted to encourage our community to come together to increase understanding and acceptance and to foster worldwide support for autism. Frank Family Vineyards joined this month-long movement by partnering with Autism Speaks, the largest autism advocacy organization in the nation. Thanks to your wine purchases, Frank Family donated $25,000 to help fund vital programs that increase global understanding, advance breakthroughs in autism research, expand early childhood screening, and improve transition to adulthood. The inspiration behind this fundraising campaign is a very important staff member at Frank Family Vineyards, Jennifer Higgins. For the past 15 years, Jen has worked on Frank Family’s Hospitality Team and she graciously shared her family’s experience with Autism.

Every parent stresses and worries about their kids. For us, our concerns are just different. We love our son Owen for all that he is and want to see a world where people with autism can discover their true potential.
