The funds are to be used to purchase equipment for special needs students in Shelburne elementary schools. The money was raised at the 2nd annual Hearts Wide Open for Autism mystery dinner held at the Shelburne Golf and Country Club on April 1. A campaign led by Ms. Avison’s love for her twin grandchildren with autism, she teamed up with Megan Young to launch the dinner and silent auction in 2016. The Town of Shelburne has made a proclamation to mark World Autism Day in Shelburne and Hearts Wide Open for Autism will return next year on Saturday, April 7, 2018. PHOTO BY MARNI WALSH
