On Friday evening, the Marigold Foundation, for the fourth consecutive year, joined with Autism Speaks and Autism Europe for the ‘ Light it Up Blue’ Campaign, which this year was at the Cittadella in Gozo, in Aid of the Association of Parents of Children with Autism.
The event also saw the exclusive live performance of the benefit track “Burton’s song” sung by Errol Sammut.”At the launch of the campaign in March, Chairperson of The Marigold Foundation, Michelle Muscat explained that the decision to illuminate the Cittadella had been taken with two aims in mind, the main one being that the condition of autism has remained enwrapped in mystery became many people are not conscious of the challenges that faces parents who suffer from this condition.
The Marigold Foundation was launched in 2014 and supported by the Bank of Valletta (BOV) to raise awareness of the challenges faced in our society.
