3rd Annual Family Fun Day for Autism Awareness

Houston, TX - United StatesApr-11-201510:00 am

P3A (Positive People with Positive Attitudes) is proud to announce our 3rd Annual Family Fun Day for Autism Awareness on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at Teague Park in Longview, TX from 10am-3pm. Autism is one of the most prevalent disorders affecting nearly all of us yet we barely understand it. This FREE event is dedicated to the children, family, friends and associates who suffer from various forms of Autism. Currently Longview and surrounding areas have minimal support groups for families who are affected by the disorder. The goal of P3A is to build awareness through outreach and to let others know they are not alone. We are asking for the community's support in making this event another success by helping us raise $2,000. Last year over 500 individuals attended and were entertained with bounce houses, music, food, arts & crafts and souvenirs. This year will be a greater event due to the addition of ArtsView, information booths, clowns and emergency vehicles for the children to touch and see up close.
