Createability Wisconsin is an organization that increases employment skills for people with autism and other disabilities through arts and entertainment.
“Hopefully once they learn those skills, they are able to find a job out in the community,” Founder Debbie Armstrong said. “We found that most people with autism are very drawn to very visual types of media and communication.”
The funds raised will go toward programs that teach creative skills and the Sensory Awareness Project, which teaches first responders about how to respond to individuals affected by sensory overload.
The Lone Girl Brewing Company will give ten percent of all drink and food sales during the game to Camp Createability.
