If you aren't directly affected, you probably know someone affected by Autism, whether it be a person with Autism, families, or service providers.
The Autism Society of North Carolina is a non-profit organization that provides services to clients and families affected by Autism. They rely heavily on donations and fundraisers to continue to provide those priceless services.
It is because of this that Mike Mullins and Justin Krick of The Flat Iron and Greg Sarine of The Autism Society of North Carolina have collaborated to start an annual benefit For Autism held at the Flat Iron. 3 nights/13 bands and hundreds of $ in raffle prizes drawn every night.
The acts include:
Friday night: Lance Elko, Cykotine Storm, NYOS, and The Grand Ultimatum
