On Saturday August 1st 2015 members of CIAA, were lucky enough to be invited to participate in the first ever PeggyPalooza. Peggy O'Neills welcomed CIAA to take part in a fun filled day of games and live music. We were on hand with a dunk tank, where some of our members and supporters volunteered to get dunked in our name. We raised $600 dollars to help CIAA move on to our next event.

Autism Awareness Day
On Saturday August 22nd 2015 CIAA partnered with Raymour and Flannigan to host an Autism Awareness day. A bounce house and snacks were offered to all children who came out. All who came out had a chance to dunk a CIAA staff memeber. There was also a meet and greet with some famous characters like Stuart the Minion, Mr. Incredible, Elmo, Batman and Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Thanks to the support and a generous donation from Raymour and Flanningan we raised over $500. We hope to make this event an annual one.
