Hoboken, New Jersey – The Association for Science in Autism Treatment (ASAT) has partnered with HOPES CAP Inc. of Hoboken for the 4th Annual “Rock’n 4 Autism Awareness” benefit concert on Saturday, May 3.

Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer will open the event and there will be a performance by hometown band, “Fuzzy Lemons.” Cindy Vero from 103.5 FM’s KTU radio station will host the festivities.
