A huge thank you to the Jacksonville Icemen Foundation for their generous donation of $23,480 to Making Strides For Autism. These funds, raised at their Inaugural Autism Awareness Night Game on November 24th, 2018 will help to make our community more accessible and inclusive for families and people on the autism spectrum.
We're also thankful to have been extended an opportunity to partner with the Jacksonville Icemen, Icemen Business Development Manager Carli Faust, their hard-working staff, Presenting Sponsor Sláinte Chiropractic, and local service providers to offer the first fully inclusive and accessible sporting event for autism families in Northeast Florida.
Their EPIC game : donated 840 tickets to autism families, provided Making Strides For Autism's Mobile Sensory Room and Sensory Bags, a Guide to the Game Social Story, autism resources by local/national providers, PSAs from local autism families, and the first Autism Jerseys auctioned off by a sports team in our region. We truly thank the Jacksonville Icemen for investing their resources and leadership for the enrichment of the Jacksonville area. #FriendsWithAutism #MoreInclusiveLocationsToCome 💙💙💙
