Legend of Distinction 2019

You’re invited to join the Jake’s House Leadership Network in celebrating the power of philanthropy and community, as we fete our 2019 Legend of Distinction.

On November 24th, we will recognize a brilliant, kind and passionate young man, Ron Adea, who has made an incredible impact on Jake’s House, on his peers and on the greater community. A talented concert pianist, a member of the Jake’s House family for over a decade and this year’s Legend of Distinction, Ron uses his unique gifts and big heart to raise awareness, inspire others and spread hope.

One of Ron’s recent and notable contributions was his memorable performance at the Jake’s House World Autism Awareness Day event, A Legendary Night, where he and three other musicians on the spectrum joined Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson on stage to create a heartwarming version of the classic song, Give a Little Bit.

At this reception, we will not only celebrate the outstanding contributions that have brought us to where we are today, but we will form of our vision for the future-the Jake’s House of tomorrow, which will be shaped and achieved with your support.

We will celebrate you, our valued supporters, and all you do and can do to make Jake’s House a home for Canadian families living with autism.
