The Virginia Institute of Autism hosted the buffet breakfast to help start their "Run for Autism 5K season" on the right foot.

Vinegar Hill Café at the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center whipped up a homestyle pancake breakfast for people who stopped by Saturday.

The proceeds from the $8 pancake buffet will benefit VIA's students and clients and those facing the challenges of autism.

"We have students that are completely non-verbal and use devices like i-Pads to communicate all the way to students that are verbal but are lacking the social skills to make a friend and have play dates. That kind of stuff to live a really fulfilling traditional idea of life," said Marisa Taylor, VIA's Director of Development and Communications.

VIA's 5K is taking place on April 12th at Charlottesville High School.
