"I recognize that we all are struggling in this down economy, which is why this year's event is even more important than ever before," said Saywitz. "All of the organizations, including the school district, have had significant budget cuts, which have hindered these charities from providing services to people of all ages who struggle with autism. I am hopeful that we will be able to raise even more money this year and am thankful to receive such tremendous support from the local community and beyond."
The tropical-themed function will be held outdoors at Saywitz's home in the Belcourt development of Newport Beach (9 Chadbourne Court). This first-class, fully-catered event will include four live bands (two Steel Drum bands, a Beatles Tribute and a Rockin House Party Band), a golf putting green, pool tables, pinball machines, video games, valet parking, red-carpet entrance, and eight beverage bars including a martini bar, rum bar, mojito bar, wine bar, beer bar and coffee bar as well as a silent and live auction featuring numerous gifts, trips and unique memorabilia such as autographed musical instruments, sports memorabilia, yacht trips and golf experiences.
"We admire Barry Saywitz for his continuous dedication in helping fund autism research. At Tommy Bahama, we strongly believe in giving back to our community. This is why it gives us great pleasure to be able to support Mr. Saywitz and be a part of An Evening of Autism charity event," said Scott Perry, general manager of Tommy Bahama's Island Grille.
