Autism awareness events scheduled

Staff report

Two events scheduled for tonight will help fund a western Kentucky autism support group while raising awareness about the condition.

The Autism Isn't Black & White Gala and Comedy Show, hosted by Families on the Spectrum, will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at Broadway Church of Christ, 2855 Broadway. Admission is $10 a person.

A cappella singer Michael Jenkins will open for local comedian Jorge Machaen, whose 45-minute show will begin at 7:20. Ten local eateries will cater the meal, and a silent auction will be held.

Another benefit for Families on the Spectrum will be held at 7 and 9 tonight in the Market House Studio Theatre, 120 Market House Square. It will feature national headlining comedian Chad Riden and guests Christopher Szafran-Luce and Mary Jay Berger. JP's Bar & Grill, at 119 Market House Square, will offer half-price appetizers with proof of purchase for the show. Tickets are $10 each or $15 a pair. For information on the event, contact jorgemachaen@gmail.com.

Founding President Krissy Ramey said she started Families on the Spectrum to provide support for families struggling with the condition. Her 10-year-old son was diagnosed with autism at a young age, she added.

Families on the Spectrum holds monthly meetings and offers classes and outings for affected families. For more information, contact Ramey at 270-366-4534 or email her at krissy@familiesonthespectrum.ky.org.
