ATLANTA (CBS46) -

CBS46's Annalee Penny was at the Georgia Aquarium on Sunday helping to put smiles on the faces of some deserving youth.

The Aquarium held a special day for families battling autism.

Being the ambassador for the "Autism Speaks – CBS46 Cares" partnership, Penny helped host more than 2,500 people for the event.

In honor of Autism Awareness Day, the Aquarium lit up some areas in blue, which is a soothing color for those with symptoms.

Parents there said they embrace autism, but managing it is a challenge.

Kids and parents also enjoyed special sensory activities at the aquarium.
