2012 FIESTA FANTASY PROM
On April 14th the 3rd annual AEDD Spring Prom was held for over 175 adults with
developmental disabilities. The Fiesta Fantasy prom took place in the new AEDD
Multipurpose Center in the Jack D. Wilson Activity Room. Dancing, pictures, Mexican
fare and good times for over 175 of our consumers, their dates, family, friends, and AEDD
staff members is the social event highlight of the year! Our AEDD Volunteer Auxiliary,
Central High School Civitan Club, Flavors Catering and AEDD staff volunteers sponsored
the annual event. Students from the Central High School Civitan Club support the Prom
each year by making corsages and boutonnières, painting scenery, decorating and working at the event. The prom
provides AEDD’s adult consumers the opportunity to dress up and feel special as they enjoy the evening. Thank
you to everyone involved that volunteered to help make this night a memorable one!

SGSCLC AUTISM PARTNERSHIP
AEDD received a purchase order from UAMS for $20,000. The money is to offset costs
associated with preparing our workforce for the upcoming autism waiver program. The
Autism Waiver Program, the Arkansas Autism Partnership (AAP) is an
n-home program that will offer intensive (20-30 hours per week)
evidence-based intervention for children diagnosed with autism between
the ages of 18 months and 7 years. We are very excited about this program and its potential impact on young children and their families.
Young Philanthropists Nikolett Kovacs and Sarah Baird
Nikolett Kovacs did not know what the word
philanthropist meant when I told her she was one. It’s a big
word to tag on a little girl with such a big heart!
Nikolett visited the Lacy Landers Skills Training Center
where over 150 adults with developmental disabilities are
provided services by AEDD including work, social and daily
living skills, plus therapy services they require. AEDD also
manufactures candles at the facility that are sold
individually, for fundraising events, or private labeling.
Nikolett was so impressed with the training center, which
she stated was “awesome and smelled good!,” she decided
to set up a lemonade stand and
L to R—Craig Cloud, Sam
donate the profits to AEDD.
Sanders, Georganna Huddleston,
Nikolett
recruited
help
by Debbie Grooms, Sarah Baird,
inviting her friend Sarah Baird to Nikolett Kovacs
participate. Nikolett and Sarah
donated $29.00 to AEDD, all raised from selling lemonade at
their stand. Nikolett said many patrons told them to “keep the
change” when they were informed of what the money was
being raised for. I foresee great things for Nikolett and Sarah.
I have a feeling this is just the beginning for these young
philanthropists and we offer our deepest gratitude!

UNITED WAY PARTNERS WITH IBM
to provide Little Tykes computers through a grant program
Sammie Gail Sanders Children’s Learning Center received two Little
Tykes Young Explorer computers through a grant from United Way. The
computers are donated by IBM and distributed
to organizations who qualify through a grant
submission process. AEDD has been a United
Way agency for over 20 years and receives
ongoing monetary and volunteer support
through the Heart of Arkansas United Way
Agency. We appreciate those who donated to
United Way and designate AEDD as the recipient
of their donation and IBM Corporation for their
willingness to donate computers to increase
exposure to technology to preschool age
children.

PIGGING OUT AT A PIG ROAST!
Fred Norman is a member of Civitan International and is a world-class
pig roast dinner guru! Anyone that has attended AEDD’s annual Hawgs
for a Cause fundraiser knows how
delicious the BBQ is. Fred has
always been in charge of bringing
in the roasted pig for Hawgs for a
Cause, and in March donated his
services as a “pig roast hoast” to
raise funds for the People First
and Southwest Little Rock Civitan
Clubs. These two special clubs
were formed for adults with
special needs to provide an outlet
for social and philanthropic
opportunities. Over 100 people
attended the pig roast where over
$1,000 was raised to benefit the two
clubs. People First and SWLR
Civitan Clubs helped serve dinner
and brought handmade auction
items for a silent auction. Thank
you to Fred and to those who supported this event and these special
people!
Wrestlemania 28
Over 50 clients
attended
the

Mania T-shirts
(donated by Unlimited Screen Printing in Cabot) were raffled off

and the event was viewed on the large screen projector via

that all had a great time!
