Autism Awareness

Tonight was the Giants annual Autism Awareness Night. We hope to raise awareness about this developmental disorder that affects more children than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric aids combines. We were proud to have joined with Autism Speaks, The ARC San Francisco, and ANOVA and Will “The Thrill” Clark presented a check for $10,000 to preselected autism charities.
