Will Davidson LLP Sponsors 2019 Annual Autism Awareness Fundraiser

Will Davidson LLP was proud to sponsor St. Louis Bar & Grill‘s 2019 Annual Autism Awareness Fundraiser. The fundraiser was a major success, as it raised $400,000 – with all proceeds going towards the Shining Through Centre for Children with Autism. This year’s event took place at Montecassino Banquet & Event Centre on Thursday, November 7th, 2019 from 6:30 PM to 11:00 PM.

Toronto personal injury lawyer Samantha Shatz, whose sister Jessica played a crucial role in the coordination of the event, brought the event to the attention of the Will Davidson lawyers who immediately felt was a great opportunity to get involved. After discussing, the partners quickly agreed to sponsor the event in the amount of $500.

The Shining Through Centre has developed into a well-respected organization, with locations in Woodbridge, North York and Mississauga, Ontario. Every donation towards the centre helps, as it costs $75,000 per child, per year. St. Louis has raised over $1.2 million in support of the Shining Through Centre and continues to be a major donor for the organization.

Will Davidson as a firm sees the value in sponsoring an event like this as we recognize the barriers that those diagnosed with autism have to overcome. Autism Canada reports that, in Ontario, there are roughly 135,000 people affected by autism. It’s these kinds of events that help bring attention to mental illness.

We applaud St.Lous Bar & Grill for hosting this annual fundraiser and are with them every step of the way. We would like to thank them for allowing us to get involved and were more than pleased with the event’s great success. Stay tuned for information regarding next year’s event!
