ATTENTION: ALL citizen photographers! We are looking for YOUR pics of the Festival!!!
The Pittsburgh Blues and Roots Festival was an amazing success! You made it magical and helped us to raise awareness and funds for kids in the Pittsburgh area on the autism spectrum.
We are producing a calendar (pretty quickly too!) You’ve undoubtedly seen the amazing art from the pros on our Facebook Page and we are,of course, going to use some of those images, but we would also love to highlight the folks shooting for fun with their phones. So please send us your best shots to email@example.com ASAP! And THANKS for being there!!!
Some of the comments that we’ve received via our Facebook Page:

Band Together Pittsburgh a community based non-profit is producing the show. Band Together Pittsburgh is an organization that employs the power of music to engage children on the autism spectrum and their families. Through music we are able to improve social behaviors, increase focus and attention, reduce tension and create body awareness and coordination.
We are exited to be working in partnership with the Autism Society of Pittsburgh! The goal of the Autism Society of Pittsburgh is to help parents and professionals grow by providing as much relevant information on autism spectrum disorders as is known to us.
