The Story

EVENT DATE: Aug 15, 2015

We are excited to announce the 3rd annual AutismUp Kite Flite Festival, Parade, and Expo on Saturday, August 15, 2015 at Rothfuss Park in Penfield.  Registration begins at 10AM, with ceremonial festivities and fun from 11AM-2PM.

 

KiteFlite is the ultimate family fundraising festival with proceeds supporting the expansion of AutismUp’s unique 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 2015!

 

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.

 

KiteFlite 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 KITEFLITE TEAM! Prizes will be awarded to individuals that raise money at various levels.

 

Carnival games, crafts, entertainment, inflatables, amusements, kid friendly activities, food, a Resource Expo and much more, await our “marchers” and friends.  Admission is free!  Food vendors will be available, and attraction tickets and unlimited bracelets are available for a small donation or can be earned by your fundraising efforts. Sponsorships are available at several levels.  Please help us to help those living with autism locally by getting involved with KiteFlite 2015!

 

Sponsorships are available at several levels.
