The proceeds of the 11th Annual Ante4autism charity event were presented to the five Autism charities over the past few months – Autism Speaks, NAA-SEO, The Lerner School for Autism at the Cleveland Clinic, The Reece School in NYC and The Stynchula Foundation. Ante4autism Founder Doug Krinsky is pleased to report all 5 Autism related charities have received their check for $22,716.40 from the proceeds of the 11th Annual event and they are already putting the funds to good use! The 12th annual event has been scheduled and plans are underway for another tremendous event.
2020 sponsorships are already being taken for the 12th annual event. Leggett & Platt has signed on as the $20,000 Presenting Sponsor again. Karl Glassman, CEO of Leggett & Platt, has committed Leggett & Platt to be the Presenting Sponsor again at the $20,000 level! Founder Doug Krinsky talked about the great sponsorship support, “We have had several 2019 sponsors tell us already they are raising their sponsorship levels for 2020 to help the kids and families impacted by Autism.” Krinsky pointed out two examples, “Stuart Carlitz, has doubled his commitment for Eclipse/Eastman House to $10,000 for the 12th annual event!” The 2nd example is “Planned Furniture Promotions (PFP) Tom Liddell, Sr. Vice President, Managing Director, told Krinsky that PFP is raising their commitment to the $5,000 level this year!” “That is simply amazing to have the tremendous support from companies and guys like Stu and Tom!” said Krinsky.
