To raise awareness for Walk Now for Autism Speaks Orange County, Berger Kahn, a law office in Irvine, will invite professional colleagues, staff, clients, family and friends to enjoy hosted blue-themed hors d’oeuvres, with a percentage of proceeds benefitting the OC Autism Walk, at 6ix Park Grill at the Irvine Hyatt on November 8, 2012 from 5:30-7:00 pm featuring speaker Andrew Hain, a 20-year old college student with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The event is by invitation only.

A signature blue refreshment will be offered for purchase for $18.80, a figure to reflect the 1:88 prevalence rate of the disorder with a percentage of the purchase price going to Autism Speaks.

A community sponsor of the OC Walk, Berger Kahn was inspired to form ‘Team Berger Kahn,’ under the leadership of Team Captain and Berger Kahn Principal Lance LaBelle, who has taken a personal interest in autism.

Says LaBelle, “We have a goal of including the whole office in ‘Team Berger Kahn,’ inviting and inspiring the whole Berger Kahn network to join in support of those with special needs in our community.”
