Teresa and Brad Doty served as chairmen for Sherwood Autism Center’s Beat the Blues event on February 17th at Union Station Kansas City. Guests were encouraged to wear blue creative cocktail attire, both to promote autism awareness and to beat the winter blues. More than 200 partygoers enjoyed themselves and raised in excess of $50,000 to support those with autism.
