2nd Annual Rock’n 4 Autism Awareness Concert in Hoboken

HOPES CAP, Inc. and the Association for Science in Autism Treatment (ASAT) are excited to be co-hosting the 2nd Annual Rock’n 4 Autism Awareness Concert on Saturday, April 28, 2012 (from 2pm to 6pm). 80 businesses supported the cause last year.

This indoor/outdoor event will be held at the Rue School Gym (301 Garden) here in Hoboken and will include a variety of entertainment and family-friendly activities (in case of inclement weather, all activities will be held indoors). We anticipate a wonderful fun-filled afternoon for everyone.

  • Attendees will enjoy two sets of Hoboken’s very own Fuzzy Lemons, a popular and family-friendly rock band.
  • There will also be a guest appearance by NY Jets player, Mike DeVito, for autographs and pictures.
  • This event will include child-centered activities including face painting, games, and a bouncy house. .
  • This event will also promote autism awareness and education about best practices in autism treatment. Tables, staffed by knowledgeable parents and professionals from ASAT, HOPES CAP Inc., the Hoboken Special Needs Parent Group, and Autism New Jersey, will provide information and take-away materials for those interested.

Recent studies estimate that there are 673,000 children affected by autism in the United States (Current estimates suggest that 1 in 110 children have autism). Each year, countless Hudson County families spend thousands of dollars on unproven treatments for their children with autism. ASAT’s mission is to disseminate accurate information about autism treatments so that all families are able to identify and choose effective, scientifically-validated interventions. HOPES CAP, Inc. is also committed to ensuring that parents access accurate information to help their children realize their full potential. Children with autism deserve nothing less!
