Traveling Back To Wild West For Autism Center

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA – In Kennewick some people traveled back in time to the old Wild West…all for a good cause.      

The Responding to Autism Center opened up the doors to Deadwood Saloon. The mystery dinner introduced visitors to some murderous cowboys and some law enforcing sheriffs. The entertaining show and meal raised funds for different programs to help people with autism.

"Autism is a pervasive disorder that affects children and adults. It takes a lot of different intervention, support and education," said Christine Lindgren, the director of the center. "Often that's not covered by insurance or hasn't been as readily available in our community."

With the funds raised from the dinner held at Saint Jospeh's in Kennewick, the group hopes to offer some of those services to those who need them.
