Students at the Ventnor Educational Community Complex and at the Ross School in Margate gathered in their school yards, carrying small bottles of bubbles. Waiting for the right moment they blew bubbles for several minutes to create awareness about autism.

Ross students formed into a ribbon to take a photo to remember their eighth annual event. Students at VECC formed a rectangle to blow bubbles to commemorate their 10th annual bubble-blowing event.

Students of the Ventnor Student Council, helped organize and promote the event in their school. 

"It's the same idea every year to spread awareness about autism. It's a wonderful thing to have all the students, faculty and administrators together for the cause," eighth grader John Russell said.


Isabella Mosca, who started the event 10 years ago when her son was attending the school, attended with her daughter, also named Isabella.

"It's a beautiful thing. I'm overjoyed with the outpouring of support and the flowing of bubbles," Mosca said.

Teachers held a dress down day on Monday, March 31 and raised $235 to donate to Faces for Autism, a United Way approved non-profit that educates the public about autism and provides support for families dealing with autism.
