ENJOY A FAMILY-FRIENDLY MARDI GRAS FEB. 9

Karina AlexanderPublished: January, 2013

Fullerton Cares’ 4th annual fundraiser will raise funds for autism initiatives

Mark your calendars because on Feb. 9 Bourbon Street Bar and Grill in Downtown Fullerton will host its 4th annual Mardi Gras for Autism event to raise awareness and funds for Fullerton Cares, a charity that provides funds for programs for kids with autism.

“The way we’ve designed Mardi Gras for Autism, families can come out and enjoy a good time together, whether they have children on the spectrum or not,” said Larry Houser, co-owner of Bourbon Street Bar and Grill and founder of Fullerton Cares. Houser became involved with autism after his son Boyd, now age 4, was diagnosed with autism at age two.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, one in every 88 children is affected with autism, which affects the ability to communicate and develop social relationships, and is accompanied by behavioral challenges that vary from child to child.

The free family- friendly event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will feature the Aquarium of the Pacific’s “Aquarium on Wheels”, which children will see sea stars, anemones and sharks. Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) will be on hand to answer any questions and provide information for visitors. Also, the local tattoo community has created custom artwork for Trucker’s hats donated by Liberty Board Shop that will be for sale. There will also be face painting, live music, and educational programs, mixed martial arts demonstrations and much more.

Bourbon Street Bar and Grill is located at 110 E. Commonwealth Ave, Fullerton, CA 92832
