The Greater Cleveland Aquarium and Cleveland Clinic Children’s are pairing up to increase awareness and raise funds to support research for their Autism Center. For the entire month of September, The Greater Cleveland Aquarium will donate $5 of every regular admission ticket purchased from September 1st through September 30th, 2014 to Cleveland Clinic Children’s. The general public can purchase tickets in two ways: online securely at www.greaterclevelandaquarium.com/ or at the box office with cash or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, and Discover).
The money raised will go directly to treatment services and research for autism in order to improve the lives of children with autism and their families.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disorder that affects brain functioning and impairs child development and learning. The Cleveland Clinic Children’s Center for Autism offers treatment services both on-site and in the community. As part of Cleveland Clinic, a world-renowned research-based medical center, the Center for Autism is committed to fostering research to gain a better understanding of the causes of autism and to investigate effective treatments.
“The Greater Cleveland Aquarium team is excited to partner with the Clinic for this important cause,” says Tami Brown, General Manager. “Now that we are locally owned, we look forward to playing a much larger role in the community, and this program is a perfect start.”
