The city of Temecula in association with Our Nicholas Foundation will Light it Up Blue to commemorate Autism Awareness Month, Tuesday, April 2, at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 41000 Main Street. The community is invited to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day at the steps of City Hall and watch the illumination. The evening will begin at 7 p.m. with a message from the mayor. Light refreshments will follow the ceremony.
Light it Up Blue is a global initiative that helps to raise and shed light on autism spectrum disorder. In honor of the day, many iconic landmarks, hotels, sporting venues, concert halls, museums, bridges and retail stores are among the many homes and communities taking part in Light it Up Blue.
“Our lives are all touched in one way or another by the growing epidemic of autism,” Mayor Mike Naggar said. “I’m very proud of the efforts that we have taken to increase awareness, not only in children with autism, but to all disabilities and that the Temecula City Hall will be lit up blue among other communities across the nation. I invite and encourage our local businesses and residents to do the same.
