Dinner Theater in Dutchess Country (Aired on April 21 and 22, 2018) Felicia DiNonno, founder of the Clove Creek Dinner Theater in            Fishkill, NY, and Rotarian Andrew Ciccone (Newburgh) visit RadioRotary to tell about the many fundraising opportunities available using the facilities of the dinner theater. Of course, Clove Creek Dinner Theater features new comedy theater every month interspersed with audience-participation mysteries and other special evenings along with dinners prepared by Culinary Institute chefs. Nonprofit organizations can use the shows as fundraisers in several ways. Tickets can be purchased for an evening fundraiser at a reduced rate and then sold at the regular rate or higher, with the organization pocketing the difference. Clove Creek staff will help set up drawings or contests with prizes supplied by the dinner theater and organizations can run their own raffles or silent auctions, taking home all of the money earned. The dinner theater will also help promote the fundraising event on its popular Facebook page.

Anderson Center for Autism (Aired on April 4 and 5, 2018)
Eliza Bozenski,

Chief Development Officer of the Anderson Center for Autism, and the host of comes to the RadioRotary microphone to discuss the autism
spectrum and how the Anderson Foundation’s several ways of outreach are making a difference for families that must cope with autism. Autism spectrum disorder is a developmental disability that ranges from what is commonly called Asperger Syndrome, which may be accompanied by high intelligence, to instances of autism that feature very low intelligence and serious disability. Early intervention makes a considerable difference in development; parents recognizing that a child may have a problem should not hesitate about taking the child to a physician for a diagnosis. The Anderson Foundation provides a range of autism services, including residential treatment and consultation with families.  One program helps businesses develop an autism supportive environment that can modify practices so that persons on the autism spectrum can feel more
comfortable and handle business interactions more easily. There is a lot more to learn from this insightful interview.
