Most of us know somebody with autism, and if you don’t, just wait. The latest government research shows the neurological disorder affects one in 91 children, one in 58 boys, the International Center for Autism Research and Education said.
The organization is hosting a major fundraiser, Icare4Autism 2010, at The Florida Aquarium, 701 Channelside Drive in Tampa, from 6 to 10 p.m. on April 15.
It will auction off “Twilight,” Taylor Swift and Heath Ledger memorabilia, autographed items by Drew Brees, Jimmy Fallon tickets and a private tour of Yankee Stadium, Richard Wagner said.
There will also be celebrity appearances, complimentary wine tasting and live music. About 3,000 people are expected to attend, Wagner said.
The event will raise awareness and funds for autism research and education. Early bird tickets, available until March 15, cost $50. Tickets bought between March 16 and April 1 cost $65, and tickets purchased after that are $75.
To order tickets or for information, go to www.Icare4autism.org or call 1-877-877-7677. To download the flyer, click here.
