Light It Up Blue
The Centre for Autism Spectrum Disorders joined with Autism Gold Coast in celebrating ‘Light It Up Blue’ in recognition of World Autism Awareness Day. Bond University hosted this event in 2012-2013-2014 on behalf of Autism Gold Coast and our local Autism community.
Now in its third year, this event showcased live music including children’s entertainers, Bond’s A Capella choir and other Bond University Music Society artists. There were a number of interactive activities specifically for children including face painting, balloon artists, jugglers and other carnival-style games. The focus was on a relaxed atmosphere in which children and their families can celebrate together.
We joined thousands of other iconic buildings across the world by throwing a blue light over Bond University’s Arch Building at 7:00pm during the official lighting ceremony in commemoration of World Autism Awareness Day.
All guests were encouraged to wear blue on the day as a symbol of raising awareness of Autism, a condition which affects in 1 in 110 children in Australia.
Autism Gold Coast and Bond Uni CASD were pleased to have you join us on these occasions which are dedicated to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, their families, and friends.
