The recent Peter Pedroni Memorial Dinner was successful in raising over $6000 dollars.

The event benefits Life Village, an inclusive, residential community being developed in Boone, for adults with autism and related challenges to live, learn and grow in a safe, supported environment.

The event not only raised $6065 dollars, but also raised awareness of how LIFE Village began and where things are headed, to gain support from the community and to share ways supporters can help.

Dr. Jim Taylor, President and Founder, Candace Lang, Director of Development and co-founder and Cameron Kempson, Director of Education for Simply Home, spoke at the dinner, held in November, at the Boone Golf Club's Fairway Cafe.
