Blue Ridge Autism and Achievement Center (BRAAC), a SVH Services program, announced a series of special events that will be the focus of its efforts during National Autism Awareness Month in April.

BRAAC, a non-profit, non-sectarian center that provides education and services for children and families affected by autism and unique learning challenges, will be partnering with many community organizations and groups through May. BRAAC’s hope is that these events will continue to build on the awareness of the need of community support of services for individuals with unique learning challenges, as well as continue to help raise funds so that BRAAC can continue its mission throughout Southwest Virginia.

The events include Bellacino’s Dining Out for Children at its Daleville location all day on Tuesday, April 11. Mention BRAAC when you order and 10 percent of your receipt is donated to BRAAC.
