Puzzle Run and Backyard Bash in Naperville, IL
Toyota of Naperville has a long and proud track record of working with Turning Pointe Autism Foundation to ensure that the school and its staff have the resources necessary to continue to help its students. Last month we helped with our annual Test Drives for Autism fundraiser. Toyota of Naperville was able to donate more than $18,000 to the school in support of students diagnosed on the Autism spectrum. Next month the school is doing something different with the inaugural Puzzle Run and Backyard Bash in Naperville, IL on June 7. This is a great opportunity to see some of the hidden beauty of our area while helping to raise money for a very worthy cause.
