The money raised will help benefit area families with children with autism.
Organizers said the benefit is a fun time for everyone, especially the children with autism.
"It's a judge-free zone and the parents feel comfortable. We make sure that everything is set up and the noise is okay and the lights and make it sensory friendly for the kids," said Tiffany Kendall, the founder of Special Parents - Special Kids Inc.
The benefit will be March 24 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the American Legion Post 11 on 9th Street in Lafayette.
