PARLIN – Vendors and sponsors are being sought for the seventh-annual Autism Awareness Swim & Play, scheduled for Saturday, May 4 at the Educational Services Commission of New Jersey’s Aquatics & Fitness Center, 333 Cheesequake Road, in Parlin.

The three-hour event, which helps spread Autism awareness and raises funds for the Autism community, directly supports Autism New Jersey, a statewide, non-profit resource that provides essential information, advocacy and support to children and their families.

This event, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., is a family-friendly fun time and an ideal marketing venue for sponsors and exhibitors. Swim & Play participants raise money for Autism New Jersey by swimming laps, while others enjoy playtime in the activity pool or other fun events that are being planned, such as arts and crafts.
