Few organizations have demonstrated the same level of commitment to helping NECC grow and thrive as our friends at Dunkin’ Donuts. We are thrilled to present them our Community Autism Champion Award for 2017,” said Vincent Strully, Jr., President and CEO of The New England Center for Children.

The New England Center for Children® (NECC®), a global leader in education and research for children with autism, announced today it will honor Dunkin’ Donuts with its Community Autism Champion Award for 2017 at their annual Children of Promise Gala on November 17 at the InterContinental Hotel in Boston. Dunkin’ Donuts will receive the honor for their commitment to fund raising for autism education.

“Dunkin’ Donuts is proud to help children with autism in our communities and beyond receive better educational services on their road to independence, and we are honored to receive this award,” said Neal Faulkner, Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee and NECC Board member.

Dunkin’ Donuts is a long-time fund-raising partner in the Carlos Placido-Dunkin’ Donuts Golf Classic, an annual charitable golf tournament to benefit children with autism at The New England Center for Children. The Golf Classic has raised more than $2 million dollars in the past 20 years.

“Few organizations have demonstrated the same level of commitment to helping NECC grow and thrive as our friends at Dunkin’ Donuts. We are thrilled to present them our Community Autism Champion Award for 2017,” said Vincent Strully, Jr., President and CEO of The New England Center for Children. “Dunkin’ Donuts has been instrumental in helping raise much-needed funds to support worldwide education and skills development for children with autism, educational research dissemination, and NECC staff professional development.”
