    DelAWAREness was started in 2015 by Beat Addikts co-owner Todd Munoz. It is a Dance Charity Showcase that brings together organizations from 5 different states to raise awareness and funds for Autism Delaware. Todd's little brother Trace Aviary Jones was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2 years old. Todd has experienced first hand the trials, attention, and financial burden that having a family member with autism can cause. With it, however, comes a level of love and appreciation that he wanted to spread to his surrounding community. Todd has learned so many lessons from his little brother and the love that they have for each other can't be matched. The growth, love, support, and positive impact that DelAWAREness has made on Trace's life has been the biggest blessing to Todd and his family.
    In just three years, DelAWAREness has raised almost $50,000 !!!!

    In honor of Todd's 30th Birthday, the goal for DelAWAREness 2018 is $30,000!!!

    If you are interested in volunteering please email Volunteer@delautism.org.
