If you’re looking for a family outing just in time to get in the holiday spirit, come along to A Christmas Spectrum – an evening of Christmas music, dancing and amazing performances raising money (and awareness) about Autism. For individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families, transition to adulthood can create certain unique challenges and programs that provide support to adults specifically are often underfunded. A Christmas Spectrum will raise money for Autism BC to specifically fund programs such as “Launch Into Life” which provides, much needed support to individuals with ASD who are over 18. Raising money for this very important initiative, talented performers will join together from throughout the country to present a spectacular arrangement of festive music and dance.
