Endwell business holds private event for children with autism

ENDWELL (WBNG) — A business owner in Endwell closed his doors Tuesday night out of the kindness of his heart.

Bouncing Monkey’s in Endwell held a private event for children with autism.

The event lasted two hours and admission was free for the children that wanted to come and play.

It started as the Wish Upon a Monkey initiative that owner Anthony DePhillip started more than a year ago. 

"The thought of kids not being able to play for whatever reason bothers me a little bit,’" DePhillip said. "So i figure if the stimulus is an issue I can reduce that, if there’s anything else I can help them with we’ll do what we can and it gets them a night out to play." 

There have been six autism nights since DePhillip started the program. He tries to hold one each month.
