WE ROCK FOR AUTISM Partners With 80s In The Park

New South Florida Non-Profit Partners with 80’s in the Park Event to Raise Money to Assist with Music Therapy Sessions for Children with Autism.
 
Hollywood, FL – We Rock for Autism, a South Florida based non-profit organization, has teamed up with the 80’s in the Park event of Melbourne, FL to promote autism awareness and acceptance and raise funds to assist children with autism receive music and art therapy sessions.
Autism now effects 1 in 68 children. Although there are many theories on what causes the onset of autism, there is still no absolute answer. And, with all the advancements in diagnosis and treatment, there is still no cure. Research has shown that a vast amount of children with autism, respond very well to music therapy when used in conjunction with a comprehensive treatment program. Music therapy is often used to address non-musical goals and often mirror speech, occupational, and behavior therapists.
We Rock for Autism was founded to assist families in allowing their children, which have been diagnosed with autism, receive music therapy sessions that they would otherwise not be able to afford on their own. “We are honored to have the support of 80’s in the Park,” said Chris Wilson, President, We Rock for Autism. “To embrace the music them of our foundation and promote our cause at such an iconic event has us all thrilled. The promoters of the event could not be more supportive of our efforts and we hope to see everyone who attends stop by our booth and say hello.”
The popular 80’s in the Park event, which takes place in Melbourne FL on September 26th, 27th, and 28th of 2014 learned of the goals and mission of We Rock for Autism and immediately offered their assistance. The promoters of the event donated a sponsorship package to We Rock for Autism, which includes vendor space at the event, to allow them to promote their cause, as well as several tickets to the event to ensure the board members and their families would be able to attend and enjoy a weekend full of EVERYTHING 80’s…including some of the most popular rock bands, movies, toys, games and more from that awesome decade.
We Rock for Autism is hoping to work with some of the scheduled bands to receive donated signed merchandise to sell at the event and possibley even a few auction items. Tickets purchased for the event, using the We Rock for Autism link will also generate funds for the foundation, as the promoters of the 80’s in the Park event have decided to donate a portion of all We Rock for Autism tickets sales, back to the foundation.
