Jigsaw Puzzle Competition Set for January 18th

Game On! Area puzzlers, are you ready to connect? Registration for the Third Annual Hope For Three Jigsaw Puzzle Competition is now open. On January 18th, Hope For Three and presenting sponsor LearningRX Sugar Land and centerpiece sponsor OCuSOFT, Inc. will gather at Gallery Furniture, located at 7227 Grand Parkway South in Richmond.

Each team, consisting of four puzzlers, will compete in an attempt to complete a 500-piece puzzle in two hours. Competitors ages 10 and up are eligible to participate. An awards ceremony will immediately follow the contest.

The annual Jigsaw Puzzle competition is an opportunity to raise awareness for autism which affects one in 59 children. The competition also highlights the autism symbol, the puzzle piece. The autism puzzle piece, ribbon or pattern reflects the complexity of an autism spectrum disorder. The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of the people and families living with the disorder.

“We take the puzzle piece symbolism a little bit further,” said Darla Farmer, Hope For Three Founder and CEO. “Since 2011, Hope For Three continues to join autism advocates around the world in efforts to connect. The cause of autism is unknown, and there is no cure. Because of this, we will continue to connect autism families with providers and therapies they desperately need.”

Registration for the 2020 Jigsaw Puzzle Competition is $125 per team. Sponsorship and underwriting opportunities are available. For more information, visit hopeforthree.org/events or call 281-245-0640.
