Toronto Maple Leafs and Raptors “Team Up” to Raise Funds and Awareness for Autism Speaks Canada

For the third consecutive year, Autism Speaks Canada partnered with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment’s (MLSE) Team Up Foundation, for two autism awareness nights with the Leafs and Raptors on April 5th and 6th. Participation from Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke, former Leaf and Stanley Cup winner Brad May along with coaches, players and broadcast staff helped make both nights resounding successes. Special recognition to the Maplewood High School Drum band who performed at the Raptors half-time show and our incredible team of volunteers from top-performing Toronto Walk teams, Toys”R”Us and Spinmaster who set a 50-50 ticket sales record in selling out during Leafs game and helped to raise over $14,000 over the combined 2 nights.
