On Saturday (Oct. 13), the Young Artists Alliance will host a music festival for the Kelly Autism Program at Whabah’s Steakhouse, 2361 Russellville Road, from noon to 6 p.m.
The fundraiser will include live music from more than a dozen individuals and bands; food and drinks; a bouncy house and a corn hole tournament. There will also be a silent auction that includes donations from local businesses and WKU such as a basketball and football signed by WKU team members and coaches, a WKU Store gift basket, a photography session, a Hot Rods suite package, two tickets to Shrek the Musical, and many other items.
Art created by KAP students will also be auctioned. Several organizations and individuals throughout the community and South Central Kentucky area will be donating their time including Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and Omega Phi Alpha Service Sorority.
The price for admission is $5 a person and $10 for a family.
The Kelly Autism Program, one of the six programs within the Suzanne Vitale Clinical Education Complex, is designed to provide education, intervention and support opportunities for children and young adults with autism spectrum disorders. KAP also provides training opportunities for future professionals from a variety of fields including education, psychology, public health and communications disorders.
“This event started as the vision of a young man, Ian Harper, who wanted to support the Kelly Autism Program as well as individuals diagnosed with autism,” KAP Director Marty Boman said. “Activities such as this festival are powerful when they are due to the passion and commitment of friends and families. Please come and join the fun on Saturday!”
