Holly is a 14 year old girl from Caerphilly, who has a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome, a form of Autism.
Following the amazing success of Holly’s Ball 2011 & 2012, Holly Salmon
and her Mum Jo have been busily organising Holly’s Ball 2013.
The event will take place in the Holland House Hotel, Cardiff on June 15th 2013.
In addition to Holly’s Ball, its sister event Emily’s Ball, was a massive success. The event was organised by Jo Perera, Emily’s Mum and will take place once again in April 2013 at Carden Park, Nr Cheshire.
The newest Holly’s Ball event is Rileys Wish and will be held at Haselbury Mill in Somerset in May 2013.
The Holly's Ball events team are busy bees getting ready for 2013. The events are a celebration of Autism and aim to help raise Autism Awareness in the UK. The events also fundraise for different Autism related charities/special projects/special schools.
Funds raised at the 2012 event will go towards holding free parent/carer NAS seminars called ‘introducing Autism’. This seminar will help parents/carers whose children have received a recent diagnosis of ASD.
In addition to this Holly’s Ball & Emily's Ball are proud to have donated the funds to help produce and re-launch the Autism Cymru Emergency Card service in Wales.
"We'd like to say a very special thank you to everyone that helped to make Holly’s Ball 2011 & 2012 such special and memorable events. Autism is a disabling condition on so many levels, each and every thing a child with Autism like Holly achieves is mountainous to them and to those who know their struggles. These achievements rightfully deserve to be celebrated. Autism should be celebrated. This is the reason for Holly’s Ball".
Jo, Holly's Ball Founder &Holly's Mum!
