WOMEN flocked to Salt last weekend to dine with celebrities at the annual autism charity event 4 ASD Kids.

Celebrity couple Chloe Maxwell and Mat Rogers started the charity after their son Max was diagnosed four years ago.

Designer Wayne Cooper, model Charlotte Dawson, comedian Corinne Grant and designer and model Megan Gale were part of the star-studded line up.

"It's great to be a part of this," Gale said.

"It's such a passion of Chloe's and I feel privileged to have been asked to come here.

"She's even taught me so much about autism that I just had no idea about."

Gale said she wasn't sure if she would be asked to come back to next year's event but hoped it would be possible.

"It's been a really good day today and it just gets bigger and better every year," Maxwell said.

About 90 women feasted on a delicious brunch of salmon and quiche.

Each table was stocked with macaroons, cakes and slices as well as goodie bags of products.

The event was just one of many activities over the fun-filled weekend, proceeds from which go to families with autistic children and autistic schools
