April is Autism Awareness Month at Vickery Village #liub
Vickery Village is teaming up with Autism Speaks to Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness, Acceptance and Understanding throughout the month of April.
Light It Up Blue!
In recognition of UN-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day, we will light up the Vickery Village courtyard in blue just like the Empire State Building, Niagara Falls, Chicago’s John Hancock Center and thousands of places around the world.
April 1 – 30
Many of our Vickery Village businesses are holding special promotions to raise funds for Autism Speaks.
