Evening Under the Stars 


Special Thank You to our Sponsors

Although summer is still upon us, here at Special Needs Network we are already excited about what the fall will bring… and we have officially started to gear up for a spectacular annual Evening Under the Stars gala!

Evening Under the Stars brings together hundreds of A-list businesspersons, community leaders, philanthropists, celebrities, and elected officials of Los Angeles to make a statement that children with disabilities matter! We look forward to celebrating the truly exceptional leaders who have lifted us up as we continue to serve hundreds of thousands of families and children with autism and other disabilities throughout Southern California. 

Eight years ago, Special Needs Network (SNN) embarked upon an extraordinary journey to build a first-of-its-kind comprehensive medical and developmental center to meet the needs of underserved and under-resourced families who have unique health care needs, live in some of the County’s poorest neighborhoods and have limited access to high-quality health care and safety net services. Part autism clinic, community hub, wellness retreat, safe space, center of excellence, innovation and learning lab, job training center, resource center, SNN’s Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CAAD) is now open for business!

We are celebrating this momentous occasion at the 17th Annual Evening Under the Stars / Sneaker Ball-Walk This Way on Thursday, October 19 at 6 pm at the Beehive. We invite you to be a part of the celebration and the transformation that is happening in South Los Angeles on the MLK campus and at CADD

So put on your best Sneakers and Flyest gear and continue to walk with us on this journey.
