Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD) announced today that it will team up with the National Football League’s Arizona Cardinals to host a game that will benefit ACT (Autism Care and Treatment) Today!, the national nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise awareness for autism treatment and help families affected by autism access the resources they need, including health care, safety equipment, and technology. This special event is a prime example of the many local events sponsored by CARD to raise awareness for autism treatment.
“CARD is excited to team with the Cardinals to host an evening that pairs fun and a great cause,” said Kori Fronda, operations manager at CARD Chandler. “Raising awareness and funding for the autism community while also providing an opportunity to see a great game is a win-win.”
The game will take place on Sunday, October 15, beginning at 1:05pm, when the Cardinals face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. CARD guests will be recognized on the jumbo screen during the early moments of the game.
