What many of Bobby’s listeners may not realize is that he is also very involved in community and charitable programs for which has been honored as exemplifying the spirit of giving back by his outstanding service. One such organization that Bobby holds close to his heart is the Capstone Adaptive Learning & Therapy Centers, Inc. based in Pensacola, Florida. Capstone, as it is called for short, was formerly known as United Cerebral Palsy of Northwest Florida. However, more than 65 percent of Capstone’s clients have developmental disabilities other than, or in addition to, cerebral palsy. Capstone’s therapy programs help children with all types of special needs that include autism, cerebral palsy, developmental delays, down syndrome, speech delays, spina bifida as well as vision and hearing impairments.

Bobby has served on Capstone’s board of directors for quite some time and has co-hosted the organization’s annual telethon fundraiser known as StarFest for twenty years. StarFest provides the community with an opportunity to support Capstone’s programs, learning center, therapy clinic, transition center and residential group homes, each of which is designed to help clients with a spectrum of abilities and disabilities to reach their full potential. Capstone’s mission is to advance the independence of children and adults with a spectrum of abilities and disabilities; all of which is made possible through community support. Likis stated that “Capstone Adaptive Learning & Therapy Centers in northwest Florida is the premier provider of quality care for children and students with developmental disabilities since 1953. To watch clients with a range of special needs develop to their full potential is inspirational, and I’m privileged to be in their company.”

During Capstone’s most recent StarFest telethon Bobby Likis presented his co-host Pat Windham with a donation on K&N’s behalf. The fact that K&N chose to step up and support Capstone inspired Bobby to make a matching contribution out of his own pocket. “A shout-out to all the team at K&N AIR FILTERS for their support of Capstone Adaptive Learning & Therapy Centers, an organization close to my heart. For over 20 years, I’ve co-hosted the StarFest telethon to raise awareness...and money...for Capstone. This year, K&N rose to the occasion and donated a $250 check to Capstone! K&N is such a stand-up company ...from the products they make... to their commitment,” said Likis.

K&N is proud to be an affiliate of the Bobby Likis Car Clinic and supports Bobby’s efforts to help listeners save thousands of dollars as well as giving back to the community.
