Description

Join us for a FUN-FILLED night of Mice Races, Silent Auction, Balloon Pops, and much more!! Ticket includes dinner and soft drinks. Adult Beverage purchases will be available in raffle form.

We are so excited to be hosting our first "Give Cruz A Voice" with Autism Awarenss Fundraiser! We are dedicated and passionate to give Cruz every opportunity available to him and to help others in the future to benefit from the life-changing ABA Therapy. Applied Behavior Analysis therapy is the only evidence-based Autism therapy proven to be effective. Every child that receives proper ABA therapy is given chances at life that may not be possible otherwise. The reason most children cannot receive ABA is because of the expense. Most insurance companies will not cover the treatment due to costs, and even with some insurance, can be thousands of dollars. Our goal is to keep Cruz in ABA treatment, build Autism Awareness, and to one day help other children recieve ABA therapy.


"As many of you know, our son Cruz was diagnosed with Autism in March of last year. As devastating as it was as soon as we got the diagnosis, we did everything we could to make sure Cruz was going to get the best therapy. We were hearing from doctors that ABA therapy is the most effective treatment for kids on the Autism Spectrum. ABA is Applied Behavior Analysis, which is increasing or decreasing a targeted behavior in everyday situations. It has been proven over and over again to change the future of kids with Autsim.

Waitlists for ABA are long, but we were lucky to get Cruz in a short term program at KU to start ABA. And eventually found our way to what we believe is the best school in the area for Autism, The Kansas City Autism Training Center (Astra Day School). Since starting ABA, the gains we have seen in Cruz have been amazing. We never heard Cruz's voice before ABA and we are starting to hear it more and more every day. The skills that he has learned in one year, are ones we weren't sure we would ever see. "
