The world-renowned Blue Man Group are encouraging others to “Light It Up Blue” in commemoration of April 2nd being World Autism Awareness Day.
The Blue Man Group in addition to spread awareness have continued their partnership with Autism Speaks for the second-consecutive year, pledging to give a minimum $25,000 donation to the cause as well as host a sensory-friendly show suitable for children with autism spectrum disorders in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York and Orlando.
“We are overjoyed that Blue Man Group is continuing their partnership with Autism Speaks,” remarked Peter Morton, Autism Speaks vice president of development. “We hope this year’s initiatives are an even bigger success than last year.”
Blue Man Group will collect donations for Autism Speaks throughout April, Autism Awareness Month. All month, show goers will have the opportunity to donate at the Boston, Chicago and New York productions.
