Miami, OK group raises money to help those with autism

A benefit auction held at Peoria Ridge Golf Course raised money for Autism Quest, a program designed to help people with autism develop skills to hold a job. The weather prevented a golf tournament planned, but the auction still took place, indoors.  

Autism Quest has been around for only six months, but hopes to train people with autism to function in the workplace.

"We're helping just with basic social skills," said Alan Carnahan. "Helping these individuals overcome their shyness, perhaps. Or their inability to build social networks, as well as to interact with people in the job place."
