Banding Together, a Night of Too Many Stars grantee, offers music therapy to hundreds of individuals with autism and developmental disabilities each year in San Diego County, California. Everyone gets a chance to play in these music sessions, while also learning skills such as expressing emotions, connecting with others, and socializing.  What’s more, there are joyful, community programs and jam sessions led by local musicians and Grammy Award-winning artists. See first-hand what an infectiously delightful, musical experience Banding Together is.

The NEXT for AUTISM Grants Program supports organizations that provide educational, employment, social, and community-based services to improve outcomes for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and their families. It is funded by proceeds from the Night of Too Many Stars comedy benefit, which in 2017, was done in partnership with HBO.
