A press release from the clinic says the event was made possible through a grant from the Children’s Trust Fund of Alabama.

“The Back to School Bash is a way for the UA Autism Clinic, with the support of the Children’s Trust Fund of Alabama, to support our community by providing school supplies as well as an opportunity for families to connect with each other, learn more about resources and enjoy an afternoon of fun before kicking off a new school year,” director of the UA Autism Spectrum Disorders Clinic Dr. Laura Stoppelbein said.

“It is important to us that families feel supported and valued, and the Back to School Bash is a way we can show that.”

The event will take place on Butler Field, behind the UA Autism Spectrum Disorders Clinic, located on the University of Alabama campus.
