POAC-NoVA and ASNV Annual Holiday Party

Dec 20, 2014 Download iCalendar

Please join us at the Parents Of Autistic Children of Northern Virginia (POAC-NoVA) and the Autism Society of Northern Virginia's (ASNV) Holiday Party on Saturday, 20 December at the Kena Shriners Hall.

It will be at the smaller Shriners hall at the back of the parking lot, not the big one in the front. This is for all of our friends in the disability community. In order to avoid long lines at the mall, please join us for photo opportunities with Santa from ONLY 1:30 to 2:30pm.

We will have a camera for these photos, but please bring your own camera if you want. There will be a toy, video tapes, and therapy equipment swap table. So, drop by for children's activities and games, food, music, DVDs and fun!

There will be gifts for all the kids from Santa and hundreds of stuffed animals for you to pick a dozen to take home, so bring a big bag for all the gifts. There will be a quiet area in a side room, if the noise gets to be too much for your child in the ballroom. Please bring a dessert or snack if you like, but it is not required. We will have a table set aside for gluten-free & casein-free food, and we hope to again receive a donation of gluten-free food from Ener-G Foods for this event.

For a number of years, we have had a toy and therapy equipment swap table at our annual autism holiday party. So, clean out the closets and drawers to bring some no-longer-used items for other families to use.

All are welcome and their is no charge for this event. However, an RSVP would be GREATLY appreciated so we can get the appropriate amount of the regular party food. Please RSVP by email to holidayparty@poac-nova.org with the number attending.

When: Saturday, 14 December from 1 to 4pm

Where: Kena Shriners Hall, 9001 Arlington Blvd, Fairfax, VA. It will be at the smaller Shriners hall at the back of the parking lot, not the big one in the front.
