Event Details

Breaking The Silence is an annual concert founded by drummer, Ron Thomas of Chicago's up and coming rock band, VEILSIDE

After years of struggle with their own son's diagnosis of Autism, Ron and his wife Jean, composed the idea of having a fund raising event to benefit one of the various supportive non-for-profit organizations within the state of Illinois.

BTS was originally started to raise awareness for Autism but what started out as a simple event has grown into one of the Midwest's most popular non-corporate fund raising events. BTS's proceeds has found a home in the Autism Society of Illinois.

The Autism Society of Illinois (ASI) was founded more than 30 years ago for individuals with autism, parents, families, professional, corporate partners and friends. ASI's objective is to provide education, training, individual assistance and practical support for parents; increase public awareness of autism; offer a referral network of professionals.

Autism is "a disturbance in psychological development in which use of language, reaction to stimuli, interpretation of the world, and the formation of relationships are not fully established and follow unusual patterns".

Therefore, with Veilside's unwritten creed of "Unity Within the Music Scene"BTS is brought to life by the overwhelming generosity of bands/volunteers that request to donate their merchandise, their time and their unremarkable talents.

And just so you know, unlike most "charity" events, BTS prides itself on it's ability to have ABSOLUTELY 100% of ALL funds donated to The Autism Society Of Illinois (ASI). There are no "off the top" or "this person gets paid first..." excuses!

From the clubs that donate the room, the sound, the lights and security to the bands and volunteers who donate their art, their music, their time and most of all, their love...ALL funds collected are donated to the Autism Society of ILLINOIS"Raised Here, Stays Here"!

So if you simply show up, promote, donate or volunteer...you have already done your part! Please feel free to stop by www.autismillinois.org to browse the many activities and other ways in which YOU can be a part of the future of Autism.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you and see ya there!
