TORONTO, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - October is Autism Awareness Month in
Canada. Since last year's fundraising events to benefit autism, the
number of children with autism has increased in both Canada and the
United States, but the cause - whether it's genetic, environmental or a
result of better diagnostic testing - remains an elusive mystery. On
average, this difficult neurological disorder now appears in one out of
every ninety children. Autism impacts countless parents who would love
to send their diagnosed children to special schools such as the Shining Through Centre for Children with Autism. The cost for one child to attend the Shining
Through Centre is approximately $60,000.00 a year.
Since 2001, St. Louis Bar & Grill has raised $370,000.00 for the Shining Through Centre by hosting various fundraising initiatives with their franchisees
throughout the year.
After a very successful fundraising campaign in October 2012 - and exceeding their goal of raising $100,000 - St. Louis Bar & Grill
is pleased to announce this year's campaign and fundraising event.
During the month of October, all St. Louis Bar & Grill locations will
sell puzzle pieces for $2 with all proceeds going to the Shining
St. Louis Bar & Grill and the Shining Through Centre also invite
everyone to their Hollywood Blvd. Party on Oct 23, 2013 from 6.00pm -
9.00pm which will be held at their 2050 Yonge Street location. The
fundraising party will include special celebrity impersonators, a live
DJ, a photo booth and a chance to win a trip for 2 to Hollywood.
Advanced tickets can be purchased via email (email@example.com) or by phone (416-485-1094).
