We are grateful for your generosity and support!
We had the privilege of celebrating Victory Academy with over 400 families and friends at Victory’s Annual Auction, Snapshots of Victory. We are incredibly grateful to our amazing community! You made the evening a huge success, raising a record-breaking $610,000 to help fund Victory’s specialized programs and therapies for children and teens affected by Autism.
This year, three of our high school students – Davis, Lily, and Spencer – offered a “snapshot of Victory,” with their live, on-stage interview. These students inspired us with their stories of real-life work experiences and earnest, joyful insights into high school at Victory. Another amazing student, Miles, performed a duet on his trumpet with Victory music teacher, Magen Dignan. And we shared a glimpse of the ground-breaking and transformative use of augmentative communication devices that allow our students with significant speaking challenges to successfully communicate! If you weren’t able to attend, you can watch the video about our students and their “talkers” here.
We also shared a special perspective on Victory from parent speaker, Dr. Sudeep Taksali. In his words: “Victory Academy is indescribably magical. You can just feel the positive energy when you are there. The children are so much in their element, and everyone who works there takes such pleasure in seeing our children succeed. They really love our children, and our children love them back.”
