An open letter to WFAR donors from Eddie & Rebecca Hurst:


Wine For a Reason is an annual fundraiser benefiting the Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC) and will be held on April 25, 2019.


We started this fundraiser five years ago when our son, Mark, was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and we feel that supporting such a vital organization will help change many lives of those living with autism.


The ASNC is an organization that:

  • Connects individuals with autism and their families to life-changing programs and support through advocacy, training and education and services

  • They train teachers, medical professionals, and direct care staff so that they have the most effective, up to date autism research and methodologies.

  • The ASNC has the world's largest Autism-specific bookstore, a resource for families, professionals, and individuals impacted by the autism spectrum.

  • More information regarding the Autism Society of North Carolina can be found at


100% of the donations from the Wine For a Reason event and ALL proceeds from the silent auction go to the ASNC.


Wine For a Reason's silent auction brings in a large amount of donations for the fundraiser and has helped increase donations by over 300% since 2014.


As parents raising a wonderful child with Autism, we sincerely appreciate any monetary donation or items for the silent auction, as this helps the ASNC provide opportunities so that individuals with autism can live life to their very fullest.


Donations can be donated at any time and are tax deductible.
