On Nov. 19, Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center featured Chef Justin Beckett of Phoenix-based restaurants Beckett’s Table and Southern Rail in a virtual cooking demonstration. The event occurred during the organization’s annual donor appreciation event.
The live, two-hour demonstration included a three-course meal where guests were guided by Beckett through an interactive discussion as they prepared and cooked their dinners. Ingredients for the menu had been delivered in a SARRC-branded insulated tote bag prior to the event. After dinner, guests attended a panel featuring SARRC clinicians on “Learning from Our Mistakes: How Adults with Autism are Teaching Us.”
The event was an opportunity for SARRC to recognize their Multiyear Visionary Partners, donors who have pledged a gift of $1,000 or more for five years or longer to the organization.
