Beer, soda, water, and food will be available for purchase thanks to our sponsors Rivermen Brewing Company and Sundrop/Choice USA.
The day will include entertainment for kids including games and prizes, rock painting, face painting, karaoke courtesy of MC JAMZ, and a magic act featuring RICARDO THE GREAT!!!
There will also be autism and special needs service providers and organizations on hand to provide information about local services and programs that are available in the area.
We are also making our stage available for any local solo musician or group who would like to perform a song or two for the crowd. Open mic/open jam format. Anyone who plays an instrument or sings is welcome to come out and perform either on stage or off…..let’s turn the day into one big jam session!!!
At 5pm, Charlotte, NC’s ORANGE CRUSH will hit the stage to rock out to the greatest hits in classic and alternative rock!! Everything from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to U2 and REM. The entire band are incredible musicians and performers and you don’t want to miss them. More info at orangecrush.com
This entire event is a fundraiser and we are looking to raise money to promote music therapy in the Gaston/Mecklenburg county area and hopefully allow local people with special needs the chance to experience music therapy and see if it is something that may be beneficial to them. We also hope to be able to start a WE ROCK FOR AUTISM or similar group in this area and be able to plan more “for fun” or “for funds” events in the future.
There will be raffles, silent auctions, and merchandise for sale including t-shirts, stadium cups, and stickers so please help us out by bidding, buying, or donating if you are able.
Event is located in Centennial Park in downtown Cramerton, NC just across the street from the public access bridge to Goat Island. The Goat Island parking lot will be a great place to park as parking elsewhere may harder to find.
Just google or GPS Goat Island or Cramerton Town Hall and you will find your way. Or follow the signs that will be up for directions!!!
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!! Tell all your friends and let’s have a huge crowd!!!
