Toby Keith's I Love This Bar hosts autism benefit


Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill held a fundraiser on Tuesday evening to benefit autism.

The Billy Brown Band rocked out at the downtown bar, with all the proceeds going towards Cincinnati's 'Walk Now for Autism Speaks'.

The event was scheduled until midnight, and $5 donations were accepted at the door.

Officials say autism is the fastest growing developmental disability, affecting 1 in 88 children in the United States. In fact, every 11 minutes, another family receives news that their child has an autism spectrum disorder.

The 7th annual Walk Now for Autism Speaks is planned for May 18th at Coney Island.
