Letter from NAA-NEO (National Autism Association, Northeast Ohio Chapter).
Dear Autism families and service providers,
We would like to invite you to participate and support this event, at the Grog Shop in Cleveland Heights, OH.
Last year, Justin Roberts played a benefit concert to fund the Helping Hand program of the National Autism Association - Northeast Ohio. This year we are holding a raffle to raise monies for the same purpose - for grants for families in need that have a child or children with autism.
Please consider attending, and spread the word - young kids LOVE Justin Roberts. Even if you feel that your child might not be able to "last" due to sensory issues, perhaps other children you know might be very interested to go.
For those with sensory difficulties we can offer a limited number of free entries... please contact me if you can not afford to pay and would like to be considered for the free tickets.
This way we hope that some of the children may at least try to participate and leave early/take a break if they needed to, then return...
Justin Robert's video can be found on youtube.come so you might want to play the songs from there to get your child used to some of the songs so the concert will be even more enjoyable for them, should you decide to come. Unfortunately, we are unable to have a sensory area this time as the Grog Shop is in a smaller space.
Please contact me with any questions! Also please let me know if you might be available to hang fliers. Libraries, schools, children's venues are all perfect places to promote this concert. You may forward the this blog link.
Thank so much!
