Laugh Yourself Blue for Firefly Autism

The Sawaya Law Firm is proud to sponsor the Laugh Yourself Blue for Firefly Autism dinner tonight Wednesday, April 16, 2014. The theme this evening is “Changing Can’t to Can.”

The Aspen Center for Autism, now called Firefly Autism opened in June 2013 as an organization with the mission of transforming the lives of children with autism by partnering with families to create life-long relationships through thoughtful, innovative, empirical learning treatment programs. Firefly Autism treats children ages 18 months to 18 years throughout the Denver Metro area and the Western Slope. The services include: home consultation and behavioral therapy, school consultation, program/educational development, professional/agency development & training and social skill groups.

Firefly Autism has resulted in changing children’s life by changing negatives into positives; turning can’t into can for some of the 1 in 88 children with autism. The attendees tonight will join in support of the mission.

The 2014 Honorary Chairs include:

  • Mayor Michael B. Hancock
  • Ken Salazar, former Secretary of Interior and U.S. Senator, and Hope Hernandez-Salazar
  • Sandy Wolf of The Melvin & Elaine Wolf Foundation
  • Ron Zapollo, Denver News Icon
