Dickinson Center's annual campaign for the Autism Awareness Charity Ball is once again under way.

The 2012 charity event is scheduled to be held on June 15 at The Red Fern from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. This year's Autism Awareness Charity Ball will feature a performance by Jack Garrett and The Swingin' Starz. According to information provided by Dickinson, funds raised during the annual appeal "help families have ready access to diagnostic and treatment services to support their children living with autism."
