Central City Brewers + Distillers steps up for Autism
 

Central City Brewers + Distillers (CCBD) announce their inaugural program dedicated to raise $75,000 for autism. Funds go directly to Canucks Autism Network (CAN) and Autism Spectrum Disorders Canadian-American Research Consortium (ASD-CARC).

The program includes a limited release of CCBD’s award-winning Imperial IPA, in which $5 per bottle goes to ASD-CARC. Sales from limited edition glassware, from Central City’s retail operations, and from the inaugural Auction & Dinner will go to CAN.

The Auction and Dinner will be held April 13th at Central City Brewpub + restaurant. Auction items include Canucks tickets, team jerseys, bikes, and many other great items.

“When we learned my son Callum had autism, we discovered how little is known about it and how much support is needed for a child on the spectrum. Research is critical to finding a cure, as are accessible programs for children and families living with autism that cannot afford the amount of care needed for a child with autism”, says Darryll Frost, President.

A web page dedicated to the program summarizes program details. The page will be found at centralcitybrewing.com/autism.
