Autism Friendly Events
We Rock for Autism hosts Autism Friendly Events throughout South Florida. These events are designed to allow families that have children with autism the chance to get out and enjoy various activities. There have been autism friendly movie screenings and painting events. We are always looking to add more, so if you have a business or an idea that your would like to include, let us know.
Painting Event at Color Me Mine in Davie, FL – April 2nd, 2017
We Rock for Autism has been attending the 80’s in the Park festival since 2014. Each year this festival brings some of the biggest and best bands from the 80’s to Melbourne, FL for a weekend of music and fun. We Rock for Autism brings a new guitar each year to the event and has as many bands as possible sign the guitar. Then, after the event, the guitar is auctioned off online and all of the proceeds go to assisting children on the spectrum. Who has signed…? Well, just to name a few… Quiet Riot, Stryper, George Lynch, Lynch Mob, Tuff, Bullet Boys, Slaughter, Great White, Femme Fatale, Kix, L.A. Guns, Every Mother’s Nightmare, Junkyard, Lillian Axe, Don Jamieson, and more. Check out the pictures!
