OUCARES Film Premier
Actor/director Joey Travolta is brightening the lives of children on the autism spectrum. Travolta will be in town this week to celebrate the 7th annual OUCARES summer film camp premier. The actual camp took place last August at Oakland University. OUCARES stands for the Oakland University Center for Autism Research, Education, and Support. OU was the first place Travolta held his film camp outside of California. About 50 children and teens on the autism spectrum participated in every step of the film process with Travolta and a professional Hollywood film crew. The "red carpet premier" for the film will take place Saturday, October 27 at 7 pm in the Oakland Center, on campus at OU. The event is open to the public and tickets cost $25. The honorary chairperson will be Dr. Colleen Allen, CEO of Autism Alliance of Mich. For more information about this event, call (248) 370-2424 or go to www.oakland.edu/oucares.
