Please join us on October 18th and 19th at The Tack Room Tavern in Indio, CA for the 12th annual Concert for Autism!
The Concert for Autism is two nights of performances by some of the Coachella Valley’s most talented bands and musicians - all with the goal to raise money to help families touched by Autism.
Each night the show will begin at 5:30 p.m. All ages are welcome until 10 p.m. This year's concert is being held at The Tack Room Tavern in Indio, CA, on the grounds of the Empire Polo Club. It is located at 81800 Avenue 51, Indio, CA 92201.
Both evenings will include raffles and silent auctions featuring items and services donated by several local businesses. There will be a $10 suggested donation at the door and we will be accepting any additional donations all night long.
The proceeds from this event will be donated to the Desert Autism Foundation (formerly Lumpy’s Foundation for Autism). This local organization provides financial assistance to families with Autistic children so they may afford vital therapies, programs and activities.
Come out and listen to some live local music while supporting a great cause! If you can't make it, please consider making a donation through our paypal page. Every little bit helps!
Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. The Centers for Disease Control now estimates that Autism now occurs in 1 out of every 68 children.
The Concert for Autism is put on by a group of musicians who have personal connections to Autism as fathers, mothers, family members and friends. Though the concert is not directly affiliated with the Desert Autism Foundation (formerly Lumpy’s Foundation for Autism), we have found this charity to offer valuable assistance for those families that deal with Autism on a daily basis. We will be donating all funds raised from the concert to this organization. Your donation to this charity is tax deductible. If you are interested in donating items for use as raffle or silent auction items, please send us an email, or contact us by phone at (760) 702-4110.
