Musicians come together to make a difference


NEENAH - Saturday was a day of music to help in the fight against autism.

People gathered in Neenah for the second annual Rock for Autism.

Organizers said the event has grown significantly from last year.

Twelve bands played, including headliner "The BoDeans."

The goal was to raise money to put iPads and apps in the hand of people with autism.

Another goal was to bring awareness to autism.

"We need to make people aware of autism, what it's done, what we can do to help out." said Troy Reissman, who works for Rock for Autism. "Obviously there's not a cure at this point so we have to make the lives of these people as special and comfortable as possible."

All of the money raised is staying in Northeast Wisconsin.
