Autism Awareness Month at Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar
Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the United States and affects one in 68 children. That's a staggering statistic, but there's a way to help. Just visit any Applebee's this weekend (or through April) and purchase a paper puzzle piece for a minimum suggested donation of $5, with all proceeds directly benefiting Autism Speaks. In addition, drink a refreshing Blue Skyy electric lemonade or Blue Moon draft beer, and 25 cents will be donated to Autism Speaks.
