First Annual Puzzlethon for the Autism Society of Middle Tennessee

Do you like puzzles? Jigsaw, crossword, sudoku, or word search? Do you like raising money at the same time? Then the first annual Puzzlethon sponsored by the Autism Society of Middle Tennessee (ASMT) is where you want to be this Saturday, February the 20th 2010 between noon and 4:00 pm. Held at two locations, the event will be at the Harpeth Hills Church of Christ in Nashville, and the Coleman United Methodist Church in Lawrensburg.

Autism, is often called a "puzzling disorder" because of so many unknowns and many people with autism love puzzles. Also, the puzzle piece is the most recognized symbol of autism and this event will bring together people with and without autism to enjoy the therapeutic and social benefits of working puzzles together. Much like a Walk-a-thon, with the exception that individual or teams are sponsored for each puzzle completed, or for a fixed amount.

So gather your friends or call and register yourself, as raising money could not be more fun or easy!  Contact ASMT at 615-385-2077, ext. 3 or email
