Lincoln and Jefferson elementary schools are having a scoop-off on Wednesday from 4 to 8 p.m. at Rita's Italian Ice in Emmaus to benefit Autism Speaks.
Faculty and staff, students and families of Lincoln and Jefferson elementary schools are putting their school spirit and their sweet teeth to the test at Rita's Italian Ice Wednesday from 4 to 8 p.m. During the Lincoln-Jefferson scoop-off, customers check out in two lines -- one designated for each elementary school -- and the school with the highest tally at the end of the four-hour period is declared the "winner." Proceeds from this year's "scoop-off" benefit autism research, with 10 percent of all register receipts from the event being donated to Autism Speaks.

Third Annual Pokemon Party and Beyblade Tournament brings community together in support of autism research.
You can never have too much of a good thing – or so the saying goes. And, that surely seemed to be the unofficial motto of the third annual Pokemon Party and Beyblade Tournament held on at St. Margaret’s Church in Emmaus on Saturday. The March 9 event, organized by Lower Macungie Middle School teacher Alice Boulrice, brought in $585 dollars for Boulrice’s team (Team Thundercats) in the April 20 Walk Now for Autism Speaks. Proceeds from first party/tournament benefitted Autism Speaks through the Boulrice family’s walking team at that year’s walkathon too. The second year’s proceeds did the same thing, but also included sales of chocolate puzzled-shaped lollipops donated to Autism Speaks through another Emmaus walking team. This year, a …

The popular community fundraiser to benefit Autism Speaks will be held at St. Margaret’s Church in Emmaus on Saturday, March 9 from 1 to 4 p.m.
“3,2,1...Let it rip! It's that time of year again!” So begins the email message being passed around at the urging of Alice Boulrice, organizer of the annual Emmaus Pokemon Party/Beyblade Tournament. Mothers of school-age boys and fans of Cartoon Network programming will recognize “3,2,1…Let it rip!” as the battle cry denoting the start of a beyblade match. For Boulrice, it’s the call to action denoting the start of a grass roots marketing campaign to get the word out about this year’s Pokemon/Beyblade fundraiser to benefit Autism Speaks. A teacher at Lower Macungie Middle School, Boulrice ran her first Pokemon/Beyblade event three years ago, and each year the project has mushroomed in popularity and scope, attracting more participants and …

Second Annual Pokemon/Beyblade Party raises $565 for Autism Speaks.
The Second Annual Pokemon/Beyblade Party, held on Saturday to benefit Autism Speaks, made me proud to be an "Emmaus-ian." Organized by Lower Macungie Middle School teacher Alice Boulrice, the event was moved to St. Margaret's Church this year because last year's innaugural party all but busted out of its quarters in the Emmaus Public Library. I really got to know Alice as she was pulling together last year's event. We are both "Lincoln" moms and we were crossing paths weekly at one of the wonderful nighttime story sessions for elementary school children offered by the Emmaus library last year. Alice started to chat with me and a few of the other moms hanging out in the library about the Pokemon/Beyblade Party she was organizing to raise …
