"We are holding this concert to raise money for Autism Speaks. How often does my world center on my problems and I forget to help others in need. I'm in a great position as a performer with an inspirational message to give back to those in need. Our focus today is to be of service to others and to put on an amazing show. I want to thank the other bands for participating in this special event. " - Tom Moran/Daddy Rocker
Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Their longtime friend Bernie Marcus donated $25 million to help financially launch the organization. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We are proud of what we've been able to accomplish and look forward to continued successes in the years ahead. http://www.autismspeaks.org/
