A fundraiser in support of a local organization that promotes youth with autism is set for Saturday.

The event is the Open Your Hearts to Autism Gala and the funds will support P.L.A.Y.S. which stands for Parents Lending Autistic Youth Support Association.

Kimberly Kelly-Cyr the president of P.L.A.Y.S. says the event will take place at The Grande Event Centre.

She says there will be live music by The Broome Turners, dancing, a photo booth and a silent auction.

She says tickets are $100 each or $700 for a table of 8.

There’s also a $40 dance only option.

The money raised will support respite services, new programs and promoting autism awareness.

Kelly-Cyr says they run many programs including a lego block building club and a cooking club.
