Friends of Autistic People, a 501(c)(3) organization and its founder and President Brita Darany von Regensburg, were the proud recipients of the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce’s prestigious R. Michael Dunne Quality of Life Award at the recent 2013 Annual Awards Presentation Luncheon.

There were seven additional Greenwich Town Hero Award recipients in other categories that included the Greenwich Hospital and Kids in Crisis. All Chamber of Commerce awards were given to “those members who have gone beyond our expectations in delivering the chamber’s philosophy of bringing together commerce and community.”

Mary Young of the American Red Cross presented the award to Ms. Darany von Regensburg, emphasizing her tireless work as a volunteer, advocating for adults and children on the autism spectrum and planning and raising funds for a major project of a sustainable farm living and learning academy for adults with autism.

In her acceptance speech Ms. Darany von Regensburg spoke about the needs of individuals on the autism spectrum and her organization’s efforts to raise capital funds for the project, as well as her personal search for major donors of funds and possibly land.
