A Legendary Night
On April 2nd at the Sony Centre, Jake’s House is hosting A Legendary Night, a private event for our community. Bringing together individuals with autism, existing supporters and potential new advocates, this special World Autism Awareness Day event aims to inform and connect.
This exclusive evening will begin with discussions on the current Canadian autism landscape, led by the Economic Club of Canada and featuring several prominent figures (…stay tuned for this exciting announcement!). Following this, the event aims to unite the community through one inspiring voice: that of Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson, legendary sing-songwriter. Roger Hodgson, accompanied by his eight-piece band and a 39-member orchestra, will perform live the hit song Give a Little Bit and several other fan favourites.
Give a Little Bit
Look Within and A Legendary Night are the first efforts in Jake’s House’s 2019 campaign, Give a Little Bit, designed to raise awareness, encourage volunteerism and grow our reach of support. We want the world to know: by giving just a little bit, you can make a legendary difference in the lives of families affected by autism across the country.
