Temple Grandin Benefit for VYFS
Event Description:
VYFS is providing a screening of the HBO movie Temple Grandin as part of the Greentech Nights program, hosted by Island Greentech and Vashon Theatre.  VYFS is bringing this engaging, emotional and inspirational biopic, exploring the life and work of animal scientist Temple Grandin, to the Island to highlight her extraordinary life and work in advance of her appearances on Vashon, June 10th and 11th, as part of the Sheepdog Classic.
This movie showcases Ms. Grandin’s work both in the sphere of animal behavior, and as an advocate for people with autism.  There is much excitement about her appearance on Vashon, both because the 2010 movie is extremely popular, and because she has become a world renowned authority on animal behavior and autism and has recently been inducted into the Women’s Hall of Fame.
