Moose Launch 2018 Autism Awareness Campaign
Winnipeg, MB – The Manitoba Moose Hockey Club is proud to announce the beginning of this season’s Autism Awareness campaign, highlighted by Autism Awareness Day, presented by Red River Co-op in support of the St.Amant Foundation, on Saturday, March 31 at 2 p.m. CT.
Throughout the month of March, leading up to Autism Awareness Day, limited edition autographed player puzzles will be on sale at all eight Moose home games. The puzzles feature players Eric Comrie, Patrice Cormier, Brendan Lemieux, Sami Niku, Jack Roslovic and Cameron Schilling. Each puzzle is autographed by the featured player, and will be available for $20. Every fan purchasing a puzzle will be entered into a draw to win a Manitoba Moose Autism Awareness jersey. Puzzles are also available for purchase online at truenorthshop.com.
Autism Awareness Day on March 31 will see the Moose wearing special edition Autism Awareness jerseys, involving a puzzle piece design, when they face the Toronto Marlies. Select player jerseys will be auctioned off at the game, with the rest available online in the days to follow. Net proceeds from the Autism Awareness jerseys and player puzzle sales will be donated to the St.Amant Foundation. With proceeds from this year’s campaign, St.Amant Foundation will purchase a vehicle to transport children to and from the early learning classrooms, ensuring all eligible children can receive services the foundation provides.
Tickets for Manitoba Moose home games, including Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, March 31, are available at moosehockey.com/tickets.
