Touro Partners with Caesars Entertainment for ‘Light It Up’ Celebration for Autism Acceptance Month
In celebration of Autism Acceptance Month, Touro University Nevada once again partnered with Caesar’s Entertainment to hold the annual Light It Up celebration inside The Linq for families from the Sharon Sigesmund Pierce and Stephen Pierce Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities.
The Light It Up party was made possible by the support of Caesars Entertainment, which has proudly supported the Pierce Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities for nearly a decade.
More than 50 youngsters and their families rode The High Roller for free and enjoyed games, healthy snacks, and sensory-friendly toys inside a private room on the fifth floor of the exclusive High Roller balcony.
“Celebrating Autism Acceptance Month with our families from the Pierce Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities helps us educate the public more about the importance of Autism awareness and acceptance,” said Lisa Kunz, Director of the Sharon Sigesmund Pierce and Stephen Pierce Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities. “It’s truly special to celebrate these kiddos and their families with a wonderful event at The High Roller.”
Once the Las Vegas sun began to set, families walked to the promenade in front of The High Roller for a group photo shortly before it turned blue in celebration of Autism Acceptance Month.Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities
