EVENT DATE: Aug 24, 2013
FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Aug 23, 2013
We are excited to announce the first annual AutismUp Kite Flite Festival and Expo on Saturday, August 24, 2013 at Rothfuss Park in Penfield. Registration begins at 10AM, with ceremonial festivities and fun from 11AM-2PM.
KiteFlite will be the ultimate family fundraising festival with proceeds supporting the expansion of AutismUp’s unique education programs for our members living with autism in our community. As an organization of hundreds of parents of children with autism, AutismUp understands the importance of autism-friendly activities and that is exactly what you will find at the KITE FLITE 2013!
A fun, family-friendly environment for a cause! We aim to provide opportunities for our families to connect and our children to engage in a highly appropriate environment, but we need your help too. We can’t continue to expand and enhance programs and services that meet member needs - your needs and your children’s needs - without it.
We are launching the “Kite Flite” March and Festival to help raise much needed funding for local programs that help today, develop support for tomorrow and drive awareness of the future needs of the local autism community.
Kite Flite will kick off with a “Kite March” around Rothfuss Park. Participants are encouraged to establish fundraising teams of family and friends and are challenged to raise pledges to sponsor their teams.
Fundraising is EASY. You can set up your fundraising team just by creating an account and clicking on "Set Up A Fundrasing Team" to the left. Then, email your friends and family the link and they can join and/or make a pledge to support your KITE FLITE TEAM during the march! Prizes will be awarded to teams that raise money at various levels and will be awarded to team and individual “kites” based on originality, creativity, size, loft, and more! See the website for more at www.autismup.org.
The Kite Flite March will culminate with a balloon launch signifying our
aspirations to grow up with our children and families and reach new heights!
Then the Kite Flite ‘Festival” begins! Carnival games, arts and crafts, food and resource expo await our “marchers” and friends. Bring chairs, blankets, a picnic lunch and we will provide music, inflatables, bounce houses, dunk tanks, arts
and crafts, bubble shows, clowns, and much, much more!
Admission is free! Food vendors will be available, and attraction tickets and unlimited bracelets are available for a small donation. “Marchers” will receive a designated number of tickets based on total dollars raised.
Sponsorships are available and several levels.
