Concert to raise donations for autism therapy

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Little Star Center is raising donations to help families pay for autism therapy.

The center is holding a scholarship concert Saturday night at the Knickerbocker. The concert will start at 9 p.m. In addition to live music, there will also be a silent auction and raffle.

The center is trying to raise more than $100,000 by July 6. Donations will go towards a scholarship fund to make therapy more affordable.

Team Leader Elizabeth Drysdal said the cost of therapy can be expensive for families.

“Just like doctor’s, even co-pays can be incredibly expensive. We raise scholarship funds all the time to sort help cushion the cost to families,” said Drysdal.

The concert is one of many fundraising events that the Lafayette and Carmel Centers are having this weekend.

Drysdal said they are also having a wiffle ball tournament and charity event at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lafayette. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
