Ride For Autism 2011: Louisiana to Mississippi, March 26th

The guitar in the picture was autographed and donated by country super star Clay Walker and will be auctioned off at the 8th Annual Ride For Autism - March 26th 2011.

The ride kicks off at Cajun Harley Davidson in Scott, Louisiana and arrives later Saturday to Doc Biglove's on Main Street in in Natchez, Mississippi.

Talk about a biker-friendly town! When the Ride For Autism rolls in, "the city of Natchez will be hosting a complimentary crawfish boil for all ride participants," said Donald Royer, Autism Project Independence board member and events coordinator. "Local ante-bellum homes will be open for touring, again free to all registrants." 

Click on the event poster for details - $35 per participant includes Poker Hand, Ride Pin & Concert Admission.

Shell Bush and BroadBAND, an all-girl band from Tennessee will perform at the "arrival concert" on Satruday night in Natchez. 

You can also purchase the event T-shirt in support of Project Independence, a non-profit organization founded in 2003 to raise awareness and create resources for families caring for a family member diagnosed with Autism in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast.  projectindependence.org.
