Autism Rocks the House!

R&R plays at Autism Rocks!
The lights were low, the music was playing and the party-goers were enjoying the food and drinks at the second annual "Autism Rocks!" concert at the House of Rock on Friday April 12th.   Sponsored by HEB, Valero, and Denny Bales Jewelers, Autism Rocks hosts several bands who volunteer their time and talent to entertain the crowd.  This year, bands included R&R, Jimmy Willden, and the Melissa Ann band.  

Friends chatted, danced and took the opportunity to wear the new Autism Rocks Tshirt commemorating the night.  .

As the evening continued, people practiced their stealth shopping abilities as they secretly increased their bids on silent auction items hoping others didn't notice. Hooks tickets, Vera Bradley purses and Pepsi for a Year were just some of the potential items up for grabs.  

ASRC sets up at the House of Rock

Organized by ASRC volunteer Lisa McGrew, Autism Rocks encourages the community to learn more about autism and our organization's goals.  We thank all of the companies that donated food and Silent Auction items to make this fundraiser a great (and fun!) success.  We look forward to next year!
