Autism center targeted by arsonist receiving generous grant

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Aug 14, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- There's more good news to report for a local autism center, bouncing back from tragedy earlier this year.

Sports Social was shut down back in April, after Samuel Powers set it on fire.

Powers has since plead guilty to the crime.

On Wednesday, the group known as "Project Vesto" announced that Sports Social is being awarded a $100,000 grant to help grow its business.

The grant comes after several rounds of a competitive process to choose one business to help.
