In its 2nd year, the Love Ran Red Foundation drew more than 100 golfers to Lehigh Country Club in Allentown Monday morning, raising more than $100,000.00 for the cause. Service Electric Cable TV, Inc., proud to be one of many sponsors of the event, where money raised will go toward building an assisted living facility for adults with autism and special needs in the Lehigh Valley.
Currently, more than 3 million individuals in the US are living with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and government statistics indicate that ASD diagnoses are increasing 10 to 17 percent annually. The majority of those currently diagnosed with ASD are under the age of 18, but 500,000 of these individuals will be entering adulthood over the next ten years.
Founded by Bill and Cathy Wright, whose 20-year old son Alton has Autism, the Love Ran Red Foundation was created in an effort to help families when government assisted programs end (at the age of 21).
Another goal of the foundation is to simply provide professional in-home assistance so parents can go out to dinner or take in a movie without worrying and knowing that their loved one is at home safe.
