Miracle Mile Shops Joins Autism Speaks’ Light It Up Blue Campaign for National Autism Awareness Month

This April, Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino partners with Autism Speaks for its national Light It Up Blue campaign by turning the fountain blue in honor of National Autism Awareness Month.

Beginning Friday, April 1, Miracle Mile Shops’ fountain will showcase a brilliant blue glow between regularly scheduled shows. All money tossed into the popular water feature as well as the center’s indoor rainstorm will be donated on behalf of Miracle Mile Shops to Autism Speaks. The money raised supports research for treatments and a cure as well as educational programs and assistance for individuals and families affected by the disorder. The fountain will maintain its bright blue shade until the end of the month. Fountain shows take place at the top of every hour from noon to 11 p.m. daily.

Miracle Mile Shops joins other landmarks and destinations across the United States and the world for the Light It Up campaign. On April 2, World Autism Awareness Day, prominent businesses around the globe including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto will turn their lights blue to commemorate autism awareness.
