Light Blue Stars Shining for Autism

 

LBS'15

Last Saturday, over 250 spectators enjoyed a talent show organized by Gifted People Services in celebration of Autism Awareness Month. They gathered at the Fairview Library Theatre in Toronto where they were entertained by numerous performances presented by a variety of young artists with special needs showcasing their wonderful talents.

The purpose of the show was to increase our awareness of the effects of autism as a growing global health concern that has an immense impact on the lives of many families within our community

The show featured elaborate group dances, beautiful piano solos, and inspiring sports videos performed by children and young adults from several nonprofit organizations from Toronto. This year, young artists from Gifted People Services were joined on stage by performers from Community Living Toronto, Reach for the Rainbow, Bloomy Music Therapy, and The Chinese Culture Training Centre.

We were honored to host several important guests, such as Consul Mr. Hongruo Zhong, Councillor Chin Lee, Ms. Ying Yu, and special assistant of MPP Soo Wong, who joined audience to show their support for Autism Awareness Month. The whole show was led by our amazing MC’s: Ms. Grace Pan and Mr. Joseph Tsang.

The show could not have happened without our generous supporters - SilverCity Fairview Mall, HK Dental, Hope Centre, Charming China and McNally Piano Movers.

We hope that both the spectators and the performers had a lot of fun during our Light Blue Stars Talent Show. We’ll see you next time!
