Organizers want the Union County community to join Community Access Unlimited (CAU) for a day of family-friendly fun and games supporting an important cause! CAU is thrilled to invite members of the community and our friends to come together and enjoy a range of exciting activities to benefit CAU's vital services for individuals with disabilities and at-risk youth.
Officials said you don't want to miss out on this opportunity to have a blast while supporting a great cause.
Ira Geller Family Fun Day will be held Saturday, May 13, in Warinanco Park in Roselle at 10 a.m. near the boathouse.
According to organizers, attendees can register and donate on Eventbrite and caunj.org, and those who donate or raise $100 will receive a complimentary T-shirt! Family Fun Day will include over a dozen exciting games, family-friendly outdoor activities, a bounce house, a free photo booth, DJ, and more.
The event is a 25th annual fundraiser and celebration for CAU. This Union-county based nonprofit provides community access through comprehensive support services for people with disabilities and their families, as well as youth at risk.
By attending the event and donating a suggested $25, community members can support programs that make a difference for more than 3,000 individuals and families in New Jersey, including housing, education, employment services, support coordination, day program, and support services.
The event is named in memory of Ira Geller, a former CAU member passionate about promoting self-advocacy with his peers and fundraising for the organization.
Geller worked part-time at the library in Springfield and for the county at Warinanco Park. He was one of the founding members of the Helping Hands self-advocacy group at CAU in 1984.
Family Fun Day starts at 10 a.m., with in-person registration beginning at 9 a.m. Attendees will enjoy a picnic with sandwiches in the afternoon.
For more information, contact CAU at 908-354-3040 or email email@example.com.
Join CAU in making a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and youth at risk. We hope to see you at the event!
