ABERDEEN, NJ - Autism NJ celebrated its 50th year anniversary at Liberty Science Center on Thursday November 5, 2015. The event rose upwards of $50,000 to help the foundation give service to families with children and adults living with autism. New Jersey has the 2nd highest rate of autism in the country. One out of every 45 children born in the state is diagnosed with this disability. Autism NJ addresses these issues and, with the help of people such as Rep. Christopher H. Smith (R) and Speaker Joseph J. Roberts, Jr. has effected policy change on behalf of New Jersey residents and their families living with autism.
Monmouth County NJ based photography business, Nicole Hymowitz Photography, had the honor of photographing the event for Autism NJ. The donation of services to Autism NJ helped to record and document this historic milestone occasion for this very special foundation.
