Not rain, nor sleet, nor arson nor autism can keep Las Vegas' special needs residents down, and the local autism center has bounced back from nearly $80,000 of damage following an event in April that left the center unable to function. It's good to see that nothing can stand in the way of their spirit, and the center stands as a bright testament to Las Vegas' heartfelt determination.
A Las Vegas autism center celebrated its grand reopening on Saturday with a block party.
The facility has bounced back after an arson attack in April, which 24-year-old Samuel Powers has been charged with starting.
The party for Sport-Social was complete with a rock climbing wall, face painting, carnival games, food trucks and local band performances.
The fire caused approximately $80,000 in damage, but the center's insurance only covered about three-quarters of the cost. The rest was donated by the community.
