As the supreme leader of UCF CARD, I want to lead the #1 fundraising team for our center, but I can only do it with your help!
One of my favorite movies, Talladega Nights, features two friends who put aside their differences to get to the top of their game. When they are about to do an awesome thing, they say to each other, "Shake n Bake!" Well, here I am asking you to join me in doing something fantastic!
PALS (Providing Autism Links and Supports) works hard every year to offer families and adults registered with UCF CARD opportunities for community inclusion and social growth. Last year, PALS donated over $19,000 to camp subsidies and scholarships, and over $30,000 to providing teen groups and intervention programs, ASPIRE and other adult groups and outings, family events, and conference scholarships. Some of the events and activities included the STAGES program for tween girls on the spectrum, More Than Words classes for young children who are nonverbal, family picnics, mini GOLF, YOUTHPALS, XL Soccer lessons, Temple Grandin ticket discounts, scholarships for adults with ASD to attend the CARD Conference, Camp Two Can scholarships for children with ASD from low income families, Social Secret Spies, Corn Maze discout tickets, Ice Skating Family events, Spring Break Adventure Camp and teen social groups. These are provided across our entire region and there is something for everyone at any point on the spectrum. PALS can use your help to raise the funds that make these opportunities possible for your family and others in Central Florida affected by autism.
In the words of Jerry McGuire, "Help me help you." Join the team or donate, and ask your friends, coworkers, and others who support and love those who are affected by ASD to do the same.
Happy Holidays! Let's Shake n Bake!
