ASA-ETC was sent this inquiry from mother, Barb Johnson: "I would like to inquire about a financial gift for a teenage boy in Chattanooga. In an abbreviated explanation, my son, Nate, plays basketball at a YMCA in Chattanooga. He was impressed with the young man [on the autism spectrum], Kyle, because he practiced constantly and always wore Lakers gear. When he talked to him he found out he had never been to any NBA game. Nate sent a video and interview tape to the Lakers and they were so impressed they sent the family 4 tickets to a game on April 2nd. The price of the trip to LA prevents this experience for Kyle to be a reality. What can my son or the family do to create this opportunity for Kyle?"
After viewing this message, we responded immediately letting Barb know that we would be more than happy to give her instructions to set up a fundraising account for Kyle and his family and share it on out social media websites. Nate Johnson, Barb's son, set up a link for others to donate to where the expenses and other details are listed.
