Crossroads residents can help support autism awareness while dancing the night away Sept. 23.
The Crossroads Autism Network will host its evening fundraiser Rockin' the Blues for Autism at the DaCosta Hall.
The funds raised from the event will go toward helping families throughout the Crossroads who have a family member living with autism, said Paige Weaver, executive director of the board of trustees.
"With awareness comes acceptance, and one of the big things we want to do with the event is bring more awareness to autism," she said.
The Crossroads Autism Network helps the families pay for riding therapy and hippotherapy.
The night will consist of dinner, dancing, door prizes, live music, a live auction and a photo booth.
Live music will feature performances by Dr. Yahagi and The Mended Hearts and the Legal Limit Band.
Weaver said the event offers people a chance to have a good time after focusing on Harvey recovery efforts.
"We want people to come out and support a great cause," Weaver said. "Take a break from Harvey and have fun."
