Raffle Benefiting the Hope Center for Autism

One of the booths you need to stop by at the Cowtown Indie Bazaar on October 15th is the raffle booth. The raffle benefits Hope Center for Autism, a fantastic local non-profit organization that provides services to children with autism and support for their families.



Their mission is to provide affordable, effective therapy for children with autism to enable them and their families to live more functional lives. Hope Center believes autism is a recoverable disorder, especially with intense early intervention. An important part of their therapy is art, which we, the artists at Etsy Fort Worth, absolutely LOVE (of course!).


Each of the vendors at the show is donating a handmade item that will be raffled off. You can buy tickets for only $1.00, with all proceeds going to Hope Center.


The average cost for therapy for one child with autism is $40,000 - per year. Hope Center works with families regardless of their ability to pay, so your $1 raffle ticket can make a big difference in someone's life.


Want to make a donation now? It's tax deductible: http://www.hopecenter4autism.org/
