It’s almost Superbowl Sunday and we’ve already shown our spirit in support of not just football but families too!

hollyrodOn 02/01, we were part of My Brother Charlie Family Tailgate Party with The HollyRod Foundation.  The HollyRod mission provides support and resources to those affected by an autism diagnosis – founded by Holly Robinson Peete and husband Rodney because of their eldest son’s autism diagnosis.

The event took place in Houston, Texas at the Downtown Aquarium.Why an aquarium? Children on the spectrum often have a close affinity to nature making an aquarium event a perfect fit, and an indoor aquarium’s exhibits are easily adjusted to accommodate sensory issues.hollyrod10hollyrod2

The HollyRod Super Bowl tradition honors an outstanding young athlete in the autism community with a tailgate party.  This year, the honoree was celebrated at a VIP reception at the Houston aquarium with notable NFL players
