Park West Foundation shines light on autism awareness
The Park West Foundation, the non-profit organization of Park West Gallery, is spreading awareness and understanding of autism.
Park West Foundation is donating $2,000 to Autism Society Oakland County on April 1. A check presentation will be held at 11:30 a.m. at the gallery, located at 29469 Northwestern Highway in Southfield.
In addition to the donation, Park West Gallery will shine blue lights onto the pillars of its façade at 9 p.m. the same day to coincide with the first day of Autism Awareness Month and World Autism Awareness Day (April 2).
Autism Speaks, an autism education and research organization, seeks to raise awareness with its “Light It Up Blue” campaign, asking communities to wear blue clothing and light up buildings and structures with blue lights to represent the millions of people impacted by autism.
The Autism Society Oakland County has been involved in the local community since 1985 with the goal of providing meaningful participation and support in all aspects of life to individuals with autism spectrum disorders and their families.
Park West families affected by autism will be in attendance on April 1 as well as members of Autism Society Oakland County.
Members of the media are encouraged to RSVP for the presentation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
