PATHFINDERS FOR AUTISM

Challenge

Create an event to help increase awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorders, while raising funds to help the Pathfinder’s For Autism organization advocate for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.

Solution

Media Star Promotions designed and executed the first annual “Finding Your Path – Keeping Success in Sight” event showcasing inspirational figures sharing their unique “path” to success. The event was hosted by Baltimore’s own Mark Viviano, Sports Director for WJZ-TV; speakers included Buck Showalter, Manager of the Baltimore Orioles; Jessica Long, Paralympian Gold Medalist; Adam Silver, Commissioner of the NBA; Duncan Niederauer, Former CEO of the NYSE; Irasema Salcido, Founder of the Cesar Chavez Public Charter Schools; and Justin Constantine, Wounded Warrior and Inspirational Speaker. In addition to handling the planning and production logistics for the event, MSP also designed the event logo and all of the marketing materials. As a result, Pathfinders For Autism was able to raise over $70,000 and received a tremendous amount of media coverage that drove widespread awareness for their cause.
