Rock Out for Autism

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX) - East Texas musicians rocked out for autism tonight.

Several hundred people came to Click's to hear their favorite bands, and all the money taken at the door will benefit kids with autism here in East Texas.

It's something parents like Jessica Loghry, who have kids with autism, say is important.

"Use this to try to get to understand somebody else's perception. These kids don't want anything more than people to try to accept who they are than to change them," says Jessica Loghry.

Money raised will go to in-school programs geared to help children with autism.

Organizers hope to make it an annual event.
