We invite you to join us for A Night of Giving Thanks, where we show appreciation to individuals like YOU—parents, teachers, community members, and donors—who are making a difference in the lives of our students.

This fun and inspiring event supports the work of The Paragon School, which provides a transformative education for children Kindergarten through 12th grade diagnosed with autism or Asperger’s syndrome.

Taking place on October 12, 2019 at Darden Restaurants Support Center, the event will feature a silent and live auction and food provided by several of Darden’s restaurants, including Eddie V’s, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Seasons 52.
