Coventry PuzzleThon to Benefit ASCONN- The Autism Society of CT

In Charity, Child ID Program, Community Events, East Hampton on February 23, 2011 at 4:29 am

On Saturday March 5th New York Life will PROUDLY be bringing the New York Life CHILD ID Program to the Coventry CT Puzzlethon!  This event, the ASCONN Puzzlethon, is a unique fundraiser created especially to benefit the Connecticut Autism Community.  Check out the event’s FB page here!

So what is it? It’s like a Walk-A-Thon, except participants raise money by doing puzzles: jigsaw, crossword, sudoku, word search, any times of puzzles!

Why Puzzles? The puzzle piece is the most recognized symbol of the autism community. Many individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder excel at doing puzzles. Through Puzzlethon TM, persons with autism can enjoy meaningful and therapeautic social interactions doing puzzles with non-autistic individuals.

How it works – Individuals or teams are sponsored for participation, for each puzzle completed, or for a fixed amount.

When is it? – SATURDAY, MARCH 5TH, 2011 12 noon to 4pm at Coventry High School.

Sign up your school, community group, employer, service organization, family and more for this outstanding project!
All proceeds from Puzzlethon TM will benefit the programs and services of ASCONN.

For more information, please contact:

Kristen Bilotta-Brzozowski-860-989-0738 or Carolyn Dionne-860-985-3558

Can’t attend but you’d like to help?

We are looking for Puzzles!!! Call for info if interested in sponsoring a Table or Game, donating food & drink items, or donating to ASCONN.  All are welcome!  There will Puzzles of all kinds, games, facepainting, and plenty of food & drinks. Don’t miss it!  Tell your friends!
