Sport-Social for Autism Fights to Win Contest
Date:5/30/2013

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

Sport-Social, a Las Vegas Autism facility, was the victim of arson. An arsonist broke in to the facility early in the morning and lit multiple Molotov Cocktails resulting in over $80,000 in fire and water damage. Employees worked around the clock to partially reopen just one week after the fire. The facility is still recovering and rebuilding but has plans for a grand re-opening in Mid-June.

Sport-Social is a one-of-a-kind facility that teaches social skills to children with Autism through instruction in action sports, team sports, and the arts. The fire not only affected the facility, but also had a tremendous impact on the Las Vegas Autism community. Sport-Social is a place where children with special needs can feel comfortable being themselves while having fun and learning new skills. After the fire, the Autism Community came together to support Sport-Social and restore the facility as quickly as possible.

Prior to the arson at Sport-Social, the business was named a top 12 finalist in Project Vesto, a Nevada business competition that will award a $100,000 grant to the most innovative, job-creating start-up in the state. Now, more than ever, Sport-Social could use this grant money to finish rebuilding and create and even greater program to serve the special needs community. The winner of the competition will be determined by online voting from May 22nd-June 21st at http://www.VoteAutism.com. They are currently in second place with 24% of the votes! With just 30 seconds of your time, you can help Sport-Social and the special needs community of Nevada. Voting is worldwide and you can vote once per device. More information on Sport-Social and what they will do with the $100,000 grant can be found at http://www.VoteAutism.com.
