THE ROCKIN' STORY
The Autism Society recognizes April as Autism Awareness Month. Following their lead, Carson Consulting & Development presents the Fourth Annual "Rockin' on the River" the first weekend of April: April 6 and 7, 2018.
ROTR is the product of John Straughn's wish to bring attention to those on the autism spectrum and with other special needs. He brainstormed an event that would bring together a weekend of music and fun while benefiting an awareness very close to his heart.
In 2015, his wish became a reality and the first ROTR event was an instant success!
Over the last three years, ROTR has blessed local community organizations with over $75,000 in donations. Some of the organizations include Victory Ridge Academy, Side Street Art Beat, Central Florida Autism Institute, Cypress Gardens Ski Team, Alliance for Independence, On the Edge, Winter Haven Police Explorers, Winter Haven High ROTC, Circle of Friends, The Special Olympics of Polk County, Citrus Center Boys & Girls Club, Polk County and Davenport First Responders.
The 2018 Rockin' on the River event is hosted by Rockin' on the River, Inc. and will benefit Victory Ridge Academy, Side Street Art Beat, Circle of Friends and other local non-profit organizations.
Join us along the Kissimmee Riverbank at Camp Mack for a two-day fundraising event of live music, great food, and entertainment for the kids!
