St.Amant Foundation has partnered for a fourth year with the Manitoba Moose for an Autism Awareness campaign in support of St.Amant Autism Programs. The campaign officially launches on Saturday, March 9 at 6 pm when the Moose face the Rockford IceHogs at Bell MTS Place for their Autism Awareness Game presented by Red River Co-op.
The Moose will wear special edition Autism Awareness jerseys, featuring a puzzle piece design and families supported by the Autism Programs will participate in the ceremonial puck drop. St.Amant staff will be volunteering at gates 105 and/or 118 selling teddy bears in support of St.Amant Foundation. A video featuring one of the St.Amant autism classrooms will also be played during the second intermission.
Select player jerseys will be auctioned off at the game with a remaining selection available online in the days to follow. Net proceeds from the Autism Awareness jerseys will be donated to the St.Amant Foundation.
The Moose will provide a ‘quiet room’ for those attending the game who may need a break from the sights and sounds in the arena. Sensory toolkits will be available at the game and the team will also publish a ‘Guide to the Game’ offering information to assist all fans in enjoying their experience at the Autism Awareness Game.
Tickets for the Autism Awareness Game on Saturday, March 9, are available now at moosehockey.com/tickets. Over 700 people connected to St.Amant will be at the game, having already bought tickets in an exclusive ticket promotion.
