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.

Since 2008, volunteers have been wrapping gifts and checking coats all in support of St.Amant.
“This year, most of our volunteer shifts filled up in a 24-hour period, we have so many return volunteers who love to support St.Amant, get in the holiday spirit and help busy people!” said Juliette Mucha, Director of St.Amant Foundation.
Only a few shifts are available on December 24th.
“We wrap all gifts – whether purchased at the mall or not. We’ve had some folks who bring in carloads of gifts and we count on their support every year,” said Mucha.
The gift wrap and coat check shop, sponsored by Desjardins Financial Security Investments – St. Vital Branch, is open during mall hours at St. Vital Centre from December 1 – 24.
The gift wrap and coat check is located in a store next to Hudson’s Bay. All donations support recreation and leisure activities, education and technology, specialized equipment for over 1,600 children & adults with developmental disabilities and autism supported by St.Amant.
