The Breakers is partnering with the Autism Speaks organization to promote awareness of the disorder. Autism spectrum disorders are diagnosed in one in 88 children; one in 54 boys in the United States, affecting four times as many boys as girls.

Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. Working together, they believe we can find the missing pieces of the puzzle.

The Breakers’ Twin Belvedere towers and Florentine Fountain, along with the Royal Park Bridge and other Palm Beach area landmarks and buildings, will be lit blue tonight in support of the sixth annual World Autism Awareness Day.
