Executive Auto Group Decorates Puzzle Pieces to Raise Money and Spread Autism Awareness
Wallingford, CT, August 16, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The Executive Auto Group has teamed up with Radio 104.1 WMRQ to hold an autism charity event. Puzzle Pieces for Autism is a month long fundraising and awareness event being held throughout Connecticut to help the state's families and individuals living with Autism.
During the month of August, they are asking businesses and individuals to help spread awareness and raise money by decorating a puzzle piece. For every puzzle piece that gets decorated, Executive Auto Group will donate $5 to support the efforts of ASRC - Autism Services and Resources Connecticut. ASRC is a statewide nonprofit that supports families, educators and the entire autism community.
"We have several employees with close relatives affected by autism, and supporting this cause is very important to us," said Scott Orsini of Executive Auto Group. "It seems everyone knows someone who is in some way touched by autism. We are hoping to bring the community together in support of a good cause and with their help our goal is to raise $75,000."
The Executive Auto Group has 10,000 puzzle pieces to be decorated, which are available at any one of their 13 locations throughout Connecticut. On August 25th all of the decorated puzzle pieces will be unveiled and put on display at the Puzzle Pieces for Autism-Showcase Event. The event will be held at Fiat by Executive in Wallingford from 11:00am-4:00pm. There will be live music, food and beverages. Tickets are available with a suggested donation of $5. All proceeds will benefit ASRC, Autism Services and Resources Connecticut.
