HEROES FOR AUTISM!!!

PLEASE SUPPORT EVANGENITALS EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBER DON SHORT AND THIS AMAZING CAUSE!


Friends and Heroes,

Here comes the big push...
www.heroesforautism.com has finally arrived, please check it out!

Don Short and I founded Heroes For Autism in November, and together with many other people, we have been working night and day to produce something really special. I honestly feel it’s the best work I’ve done, and I’m proud to share it with you.

Tickets are now on sale, and so I’m asking for help. We need to sell 1000 tickets, and this can only be done when we join together.
I am thankful some people have already committed to selling 10 pairs of tickets to benefit this fundraiser. I encourage (implore) you to help out in a similar way. We will gladly recognize on the website anyone who has sold a bulk of tickets.

The show is going to be an amazing night of world class art and music, and it’s going to help a lot of people who deal with the difficulties of autism.
I truly hope you can be part of it in some way.

If you have any thoughts or questions of any kind, please let me know.
Thank you!
Greg

********
Autism is the fastest growing disease in America today.
It affects more people than pediatric cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined,
and occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups.
The numbers are staggering: 1 in 150 children
The cause is unknown, and there is no cure.

Heroes For Autism is a one-night only, high-profile celebration of art and music in the name of autism.
NBC's Heroes and Autism Speaks have come together to host a silent auction, featuring mixed media artwork
by its cast and crew alongside artwork by artists who have autism. The evening includes a VIP cocktail
hour and performances Wendy and Lisa’s all-star band, and the celebrity Band From TV, featuring Hugh Laurie, Greg Grunberg, and James
Denton, among others. The star studded event, scheduled for April 19th at the Avalon, is designed to raise
awareness about the epidemic. All money raised will go to Autism Speaks, with a focus on art therapy.

Hi, I and a couple friends purchased VIP tickets to this event, I think it is such a great cause, and we have sent it to all of our facebook and myspace buddies.
I do have 1 question, earlier it said featuring Hugh Laurie, but now his name has dissappeared from the event site, does that mean he will not be there?

I truly hope you sell many more than the 1,000 tickets you require
good luck
Such a GREAT cause!

Hi Monique!

I asked organizer Don Short about Hugh Laurie & he said that he is still on the website under entertainment from Band From TV... so it looks like he is indeed still planning on attending! :-)

Thanks so much for supporting this important cause.
