1st Annual Fundraiser for Generation Rescue, Jenny McCarthy’s Autism Charity

A Branson family is hosting the 1st annual Rock the Spectrum concert, featuring Pearl Nation & DJ Imperial, on September 29, 2012 in Taney County, MO to support families affected by autism in Missouri.

Join in on the festivities at the Outback Pub 1922 W. Hwy 76 from 7:00pm – 1:00 a.m. Rock the Spectrum will raise money for autism treatment grants for early intervention that is not covered by insurance or school districts.

“We feel honored to be able to help bring awareness to this growing epidemic. This is an awesome community of people that need help and a wonderful community of people answering the call. We know what Generation Rescue stands for and have seen great things as a result of their vision. Our goal is to help as many families as possible through the funds raised at the first annual Rock the Spectrum event and continue to grow this event for years to come!” say event hosts Brent & Cristal Hedrick.

Rock the Spectrum attendees will enjoy live music, food, drinks and fun “block party” activities, including dunk tanks and beer pong; and will also enjoy free snacks from Colby’s Kettle Corn and Beanitos chips. For the first time, attendees need not fear a hangover in the morning as plenty of samples of drinkwel — ‘the multivitamin for people who drink’ will be given away!

General admission is $10 or $75 for the complete VIP experience with a backstage pass to the Artist Lounge including complimentary food and drinks. Purchase tickets, at
