ARDSLEY, N.Y. -- Ardsley's House of Sports training facility will join with reality show star Albie Manzo of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" Friday in a "Knock-Out Autism" benefit.
According to Donald Scherer, the CEO of the House of Sports, the event is designed to draw attention to the importance of Autism Research in Westchester County.
“We are very excited about being able to join the fight against autism,” Scherer said. “The House of Sports has become a great place for athlete training, and we are happy to welcome Albie and his family for this great event.”
Youngsters from kindergarten through eighth grade can participate in a basketball free throw shooting Knock-Out Tournament for a $10 donation and the public is welcome as spectators for a $10 donation that will benefit Generation Rescue Autism Foundation.
Generation Rescue is a national non-profit organization providing immediate treatment assistance, information and hope to families affected by autism spectrum disorders. The organization boasts 1,300 volunteer parent mentors, a toll-free hotline, a list of recommended physicians, and medical grants for families who cannot afford critical treatments.
A reality television production crew will be in attendance during the event, and all participants will be required to sign a filming release.
The event is open to the public, and all those looking to take part can register through the House of Sports Customer Service Department by phone at 914-479-5419.
