Finish Our Theatre: Autism Awareness Raffle 2017!

Event Date: 
Jun 30 2017 - 12:00pm

You made it happen. You opened this facility for children affected by autism and special needs.


It has been an incredible journey, and together, we are finally improving the quality of life for these children.


But a critical component is still missing.


For this year's Annual Autism Raffle, the proceeds will go toward funding our nearly-complete Sensory Movie Theatre. Integrating animated short films, full-length feature films and educational documentaries, our Movie Theater is a hugely-in-demand feature that parents and educators alike are demanding!


By buying a $5 raffle ticket or more, you are ensuring the children get closer to their dream of being able to go to a movie, for the very first time in their life.


That's right: most children affected by autism never get the opportunity to go to the movies.


Due to their sensory issues -- problems staying still or keeping quiet, for example, most children with autism cannot go to the movies. Partially out of fear of not being able to sit through an entire movie, but also out of fear of bullying from other moviegoers.


You can change these children's lives.


The Play-Place Movie Theatre is very close to opening, but it needs a final push from YOU! Please click below to buy a $5 raffle ticket or more.


We accept cash or checks for raffle tickets at the following address. Along with payment, please indicate how many tickets you would like, your name, phone number, and email address:
Play-Place for Autistic Children 41105 Technology Park Dr. Sterling Heights, MI 48314


In addition to the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from helping your local nonprofit, you'll get a chance to win over 30 prizes. Due to popular demand, this year all of our Grand Prizes are cash prizes!!!


100% of your donation goes directly to Movie Theatre expenses -- NOT to overhead such as staff salaries, thanks to a generous business sponsor.
