Project Change Challenge 4 - “Nurture the Children”
For our Project Change Team’s 4th challenge, “Nurture the Children”, our team selected autism awareness as our cause and partnered with the MU Thompson Center and K-CART (Kansas Center for Autism Research and Training). We selected to work with the autism foundations at MU and KU to tap into the border rivalry for a good cause and help them introduce their organizations to the KC community. Our event, Border Challenge for Autism drew 225 attendees to Boulevard Brewing Co. for a Thursday evening happy hour event. At the event a short presentation was given on the two organizations, as well as a lot of informal networking. In addition to the individuals who attended the event, over 3,000 individuals received our event poster featuring K-CART and the Thompson Center. Both organizations were incredibly pleased with the increased awareness we generated for them and are ready to make this an annual event. The $10,000 we raised through sponsors, ticket sales and auction was just icing on the cake!
