kevin_fitzgerald_comedy-works

Soaring Eagles Center for Autism is gearing up for its biggest Comedy Night ever and it is right around the corner! The 6th Annual Comedy Night will be held on Friday, October 10, 2014 at Colorado State University-Pueblo and all proceeds from the evening will go toward the construction of our new adult service building and respite home for our clients. Last year’s event raised over $25,000 and we are confident we will meet our goal of $27,000 this year.

 Our headlining comic will be Kevin Fitzgerald, DVM. Kevin was featured on the long running television show Emergency Vets and is an outstanding comedian as well. Kevin is reducing his fee in order to help us attain our new building!

 Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability affecting 1 out every 88 children. This rate is higher than Down’s syndrome and all childhood cancers combined. Having autism and having a child with autism is a life-long challenge. Families are in desperate need of a safe, nurturing and loving environment where their children can spend an evening or a weekend while their parents have an evening or weekend of rest and relaxation. Our new respite home will offer this support for them.

Independence is one of the most important feelings a person can experience. As our clients begin to grow into adulthood, it is imperative that we continue Life Skills training and other specialized training, education and behavioral and occupational therapy. Having an adult services building will make a tremendous difference in the quality of life for them and their families as they grow into adults.

Our center is in its 13th year and offers many programs, services, counseling and community education for those with autism, their families and other professionals. We are the only center for autism in southern Colorado. It is the only clinic in Southern Colorado and is a great asset to the community providing services to families with children and adults with autism.

You can purchase tickets at the center located at 125 W. Palmer Lake Dr., Pueblo West, CO 81007  - Phone: (719) 547-8803 or if you have a business and would like to sponsor this great event you can download both the Comedy Night Sponsor Levels wtih Fitzgerald  and the Sponsor Intent to Sponsor Form and mail them to the center (address is located on the bottom of the form).
