ATLANTIC CITY — On Thursday, April 26, the four Caesars Entertainment properties — Caesars, Harrah’s Resort, Bally’s, and Showboat — attempted to break the Guinness World Record for most bubbles blown simultaneously in support of April as Autism Awareness Month.
Caesars Entertainment employees and Legends in Concert cast members all participated on the Boardwalk between Bally’s and Caesars blew bubbles to support Faces 4 Autism — a local Ventnor organization dedicated to autism education and support. Members of the Legends in Concert cast that participated were Tina Turner, the Blues Brothers, Liza Minnelli, Elvis, Debbie Gibson and Ray Charles.
Autism Awareness Month encourages everyone to accept and value the diversity of individuals impacted by autism.Bubbles have significance in the early childhood to adult years of those affected by autism. They are used in activities for skill development and the figurative expression of feelings of isolation.
Through understanding bubbles and their many forms for an autistic individual, it is hoped that Blow Bubbles for Autism will help the community understand and accept those impacted by autism.
