Sentient Jet to Raise Awareness for Autism as Premier Sponsor of 6th Annual Light It up Blue Aspen

Braintree, MA - February 15, 2017 - Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company, is pleased to announce that it has been named the premier sponsor of Light It Up Blue Aspen (LIUB Aspen), taking place February 18, 2017 at the Belly Up Aspen. LIUB Aspen benefits Ascendigo which serves local, regional and national populations of youth and adults across the autism spectrum through experiential, community-based learning opportunities and custom-tailored sports camps. The event seeks to raise both awareness and much-needed funds to assist families and children on the autism spectrum in western Colorado communities.

The President’s Day Weekend benefit offers a lively evening of fundraising, culinary delights, handcrafted cocktails, fine wine, music and dancing. The evening’s entertainment features a performance by high-octane rock duo Black Pistol Fire, and additional special guests include autism activist and filmmaker Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., actress Cheryl Hines, TV talk show host and autism rights advocate Areva Martin, journalist Kathleen Kennedy, Dr. Jennifer Berman co-host of The Doctors, and world-class ski mountaineer Chris Davenport.

“As a long-time partner of Aspen Snowmass, we take great pride in working with the community to positively impact the lives of those affected by autism,” said Andrew Collins, president and CEO of Sentient Jet. “Light It Blue Aspen is a wonderful way to raise awareness and increase donations to such an important cause.”

At the event, guests will also be able to bid on one-of-a-kind live auction experiences, a raffle, and online silent auction. Sentient Jet will be donating two VIP Credentials to the Sentient Jet Finals Lounge for the Audi FIS World Cup Finals to be held in Aspen March 15-19, 2017 for the auction, and all proceeds from the event will directly benefit Ascendigo.
