Heartspring announces Autism Awareness Night with Wichita Thunder
WICHITA, Kan.—Heartspring and the Wichita Thunder will team up on Saturday, October 15, 2016, for Autism Awareness night at Intrust Bank Arena. The game kicks off the season for the Wichita Thunder and the team is sharing the evening with Heartspring to educate their audience about the prevalence of autism in the Wichita community. Autism impacts every 1 in 68 children, which translates to more than 5,000 individuals impacted by autism being in the Wichita community alone. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about Heartspring’s autism services and programs for individuals who are impacted and their families. Heartspring will receive 50 percent of the price of every ticket purchased through these links:
Lower Bowl seating: http://bit.ly/ThunderLower (coupon code: heartspring)
Upper Bowl seating: http://bit.ly/ThunderUpper (password and coupon code: heartspring).
“We are very grateful for this opportunity to create an open dialogue about autism. One in 68 children is impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder, so we need to make the public aware of what that means,” Dusty Buell, Heartspring director of marketing said.
The evening will feature a special pregame video and booths around the arena with information on Heartspring and to answer questions people might have about Autism Spectrum Disorder. The proceeds from the Chuck-A-Puck promotion will also go to Heartspring as well.
“The Wichita Thunder organization has been a great partner,” Buell said. “Thanks to their generosity, we will be able to raise funds that can go towards helping even more children find their path to greater independence.”
