Margaret L. Williams Center celebrates two milestones with family-friendly event

SYRACUSE, N.Y.— The Margaret L. Williams Developmental Evaluation Center has two reasons to celebrate. On Nov. 3, the center will mark its 30th anniversary and also the 7th anniversary of the Kohl’s Autism & Related Disorders Program. With this most recent gift of $247,299, Kohl’s Cares total giving for autism care in locally will surpass the $1 million mark.

The event will feature juggling, magic, singing, large puppetry and a family-friendly performance of “Lions & Tigers & Birds? Oh, My!” The performance will begin at 3:30 p.m. at the May Memorial Unitarian Universalist Society at 3800 East Genesee St. in Syracuse. All of the day’s activities are designed for children and families affected by autism.

“We have a lot to celebrate and this event will allow us to do that with the people that matter most—the families we serve,” said Carroll Grant, PhD, director of Margaret L Williams Developmental Evaluation Center. “It’s humbling to think of how much the center has been able to further care and advocacy for children with autism throughout the 30 years we’ve been here.

And the generosity and support from the Kohl’s Cares Foundation has been invaluable to us, helping us to reach more families and touch more lives. We are forever grateful.”

The event is free and open to the public. Register in advance at or call 315-472-4404 for information.
