The 5th Annual Rock The Spectrum concert that will be held on August 6 at the Branson Landing is one of the most interesting shows in Branson that gives benefits to autism patients. This wonderful event is organized to raise funds for families and their children who deal with autism. Rock The Spectrum concert brings in local and national artists alike for a worthy cause. Every year the lineup and activities for visitors are different and proceeds from the event go to help children with autism.
Brent and Cristal Hedrick founded this event in honor of their goddaughter Shaylee O’Day. The concert includes musical performances of Liverpool Legends, Mile Zero, Vino Alan & The Crystal People (X Factor Finalist), Kresleigh, and DJ Hadenwood. During the event, a child is diagnosed every fifteen minutes as being on the autism spectrum. It was announced in 2013 that there was about 72 percent increase in the diagnosis of autism over the past four years. This staggering rate is rapidly growing and many insurance providers won’t cover expenses of children on the spectrum.
The Hedricks together with the parents of Shaylee, Chuck & Michelle O’Day want to let local families who deal with autism to become hopeful and give them a sigh of relief. It is also important to Hedricks and O’Days to spread the autism awareness that it is curable. This will be the 7th year for the two families that they have done an autism event for the Branson Area. Cristal and Michelle founded “A Day for Shay & Pals” in 2009. So, come to the Rock the Spectrum shows in Branson for an amazing performances while doing something amazing for your community.
