As part of the company’s ongoing mission of supporting the community, Museo Vault recently held a fundraising cocktail reception to benefit The Social Cog, an organization that gives social support and coaching to adults with disabilities (including adults with autism). This event, called Night at The Museo, was held at Museo Vault’s gallery viewing space in the Wynwood Art District in Miami. The event included a photography exhibit by New York photographer Debbie Rasiel and a silent auction.

 

Held on April 30, 2015, Night at The Museo was a well-supported event held at Museo Vault, 346 NW 29th St., in Miami. The exhibit brought out many crowds and resulted in substantial fundraising success for The Social Cog.

The Social Cog is a non-profit organization that offers social support services to high functioning individuals with learning and developmental disabilities. It was founded to help adults in a seldom-served segment of the population: post-high school age individuals. Co-Founded by the parent of a 23-year old with autism, The Social Cog helps adults with disabilities make friends, create a sense of community, and create connections.

 

Based in Miami, Florida, The Social Cog provides social outings and social coaching (during and in between social events) to help participants with disabilities. Participants meet together in small groups based on shared interests. Social opportunities include cooking classes, painting, bowling, kayaking, watching sports events together, laser tag, and many other activities in Miami.

 

Founded in 2008, Museo Vault offers fine art storage, gallery-style exhibition spaces, private art show setup, and other premiere art services in the Miami metro area. Museo Vault’s location in the Wynwood Art District in Miami makes it a sought-after venue for private art shows and art auctions in South Florida.
