Watch: Prestige Holdings 'lights up blue' for Autism Awareness

The Prestige Holdings team invited the public at Price Plaza to 'Light It Up Blue' in commemoration of Autism Awareness Month last Saturday. 

The storefronts of the brands under Prestige Holdings--Fridays', Pizza Hut, KFC, Starbucks, and Subway--were all lit in blue, the official colour for Autism awareness.

With 'I am more than Autism' as this year's theme, Prestige Holdings has been a longtime supporter of Right Start for Autism Early Intervention Programme, an educational programme designed to meet the needs of learners with Autism.
