All proceeds from the event will go toward funding playground equipment for Karner Blue Education Center.  Karner Blue Education Center was designed to address the specific needs of students with Autism, emotional and behavioral disorders, and cognitive disabilities. The environmental supports provided by the building design create a controlled space for students in which to learn, play, and relax. The focus on nature provides a calming atmosphere, and educational philosophies tied to nature and place build student’s connections to their world. Karner Blue Education Center utilizes the Compassionate School model, which supports both physical and emotional health by helping students build relationships, self-regulate and achieve success in both academic and non-academic areas.
