Research shows that an estimated one in every 88 children will be born suffering from the mental disability known as autism. There are numerous organizations focused on gathering more information about the disease and giving assistance to autistic individuals and their families though. The St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyers with Cofman Townsley Injury Lawyers point out that one such event, a Winter Classic hockey tournament, will be held to raise awareness and funding for children with the disease.
An article from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch explains the tournament will be held on Sunday, February 16, at the Clayton Shaw Park Ice Rink in Clayton, Missouri. The winning team will receive what is known as the Frozen Cup, an award dedicated to the memory of an autistic child.
Attending the event is free. However, funds to benefit children with autism will be raised through the sale of concessions, such as hot chocolate and coffee to sip on as spectators warm themselves by the bonfire. Hooded sweatshirts and raffle tickets for prizes will be on sale, while an opportunity to simply make a donation will also be available.
Cofman Townsley and their team of attorneys recognize the importance of giving back to the community they serve and encourage anyone who is available to go watch a little hockey for a good cause!
