Autism Speaks, Max Listens

Dine for a Cause to Promote Autism Awareness at MAX

All 11 Max locations to increase awareness and raise money for Autism Speaks New England.

HARTFORD, CT – Compassion needs no words when you dine at a MAX restaurant for its fourth annual “Dine for a Cause” event. On Tuesday, April 2, dine at any of the 10 Max restaurants in Connecticut or Massachusetts in support of World Autism Awareness Day and to help those in our community who have Autism Spectrum Disorder.

During the one-day fundraiser, a portion of your bill will be donated to Autism Speaks New England. Guests are asked to mention the fundraiser to their server or bartender for proceeds to go to the charity. Additional donations will be accepted through Sunday, April 7.

This feel-good event goes beyond charitable giving, it’s personal. Bobby Venetianer, Max Restaurant Group Director of Community Outreach, has a child on the spectrum. “Nearly everyone knows someone who has been touched by autism, whether it’s a family member or a friend. We are proud to raise awareness and funds so individuals with autism, and their families, can achieve their best life”, said Venetianer.

A bite at a Max Restaurant can help Autism Speaks’ mission, which is to promote solutions and support. So, grab a seat and champion your neighbors in the autism community!
