In conjunction with Autism Awareness Month, The Samuel Field Y hosted a charity dinner at Bourbon Street Café on Bell Boulevard in Bayside last week.
A generous portion of patrons’ bills was donated back to the Y and used towards funding for programs for children with Autism. Total raised was $3,276.
