Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook – 21st A.D.) recently announced that over 150 parents and children attended an exclusive viewing of Disney’s newest Muppet movie, “Muppets Most Wanted,” for kids with autism and other developmental disabilities.
Assemblyman Curran, who hosted the event at the United Artists Lynbrook 6 Movie Theater in Lynbrook, said the sensory-friendly film had great attendance and thanked all the sponsors who helped make the event successful.
“We wanted to do something family-friendly in honor of Autism Awareness Month – it was a great success, and I think everyone had a really fun experience,” said Curran. “It goes without saying that children with autism are amazing, bright individuals and are near and dear to us all. I want to extend a big thank you to all the sponsors who helped make this event a great success for the children and, of course, to all the parents who brought their kids out for a night of family-friendly fun!”
Curran noted a special thanks to the sponsors of the event:
