Despite the bad news on Wall Street yesterday, Autism Speaks to Young Professionals drew in a crowd for its third annual AS2YP summer event.  The event was held on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and everyone was in good spirits.  

Guests, including Miss New York Amber Collins, danced all night to the sounds of DJ Nick Russo, while playing around on telephones and enjoying hors d'oeuvres.  The event was sold out pulling in over 900 guests, proving that autism is indeed speaking to young professionals!

The goal of the organization is the encourage awareness in a younger demographic, not familiar with the disorder.
