“We are thrilled with our fantastic lineup of musicians, whose talent is only overshadowed by their generosity and support of such an important cause,” says Autism Speaks Regional Director, Kathy Streng. “For only $5, people can see a great night of music and help fund critical research for the one in every 110 children diagnosed with autism. We are very grateful for the continued outpouring of caring and generous support from this wonderful community.”
