LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A free superhero themed day of fun is planned Saturday for Families in Greater Lafayette. It's also an opportunity to learn about autism.
LittleStar Program Manager Heather Fisher said, "We're all made the same, we all have the same things within us and just coming together is just so great for them to see what we do, hear what we do and mingle and maybe make friendships this weekend."
LittleStar ABA Center is hosting its second annual superhero fundraiser on Saturday at Riehle Plaza with food trucks, music and raffle prizes.
Originally, the event was scheduled to happen in June, but was rescheduled due to rain.
The Center's employees help improve the lives of families and kids impacted by autism. If you're wondering how the event got its name, the centers employees believe their kiddos are their superheros.
"They actually teach us," Fisher said. "Even though we're their teachers, they inspire and teach us every day to push ourselves and push them even harder so that they can learn these life skills to last a lifetime."
The free event will take over the plaza Saturday at 3 p.m. and last until 6 p.m. Donations are being accepted and the money raised is going towards the centers CAP fund. This fund helps families needing help covering costs at LittleStar after insurance.
