My twelve year old Autism-diagnosed son, Jared, is participating in the Delta Life Skills ‘Summer Fun Program’ this year. Summer Fun is a unique six week initiative that enhances the social experiences for 50-60 children and young adults with special challenges and their families, and provides the opportunity to learn a broad range of basic life skills integral to a quality of life which they otherwise may not have had. It costs around $4,500 per child to run Summer Fun – parents are only required to pay $1,000 of that amount. The remainder of the money comes from fundraising, and goes entirely to running the program and providing one-to-one support for every participant.
The next fundraiser is a Pub Night at the Skyhawk restaurant. Here are the details:
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, 2014
THE SKYHAWK RESTAURANT @ the Boundary Bay Airport
6:30 START…ending around 9:00
Tickets are $20. They include a choice of burger ( beef, chicken or vegie ) and a softdrink, coffee or tea.
There will be a 50/50 draw, silent and live auction and door prizes.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an over 19 adult event.
Thanks for supporting my boy and a great cause!
