Nonprofit gets help through Independence Day celebrations
GREENVILLE, Pitt County - The 46th annual Jaycee Fourth of July Festival in Greenville is supporting Aces for Autism.
Aces for Autism is a nonprofit organization helping families and autism research. There is plenty to keep families entertained at the Greenville Town Common while also helping a good cause. There's a beer garden for adults to bounce houses and games for children. All proceeds from the beer garden will go directly to the charity. Each vendor had to pay a fee to Aces for Autism to participate. It's all for a good cause, too. "One in 58 children in the state of North Carolina are diagnosed with autism," said Amy Moore, program coordinator for Aces for Autism. "Eastern North Carolina deserves a child developmental center that can hep teach these children." The fireworks at the Town Common were scheduled to go off around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday.
