In 2010, Chip and Sandi Robinson of Robinson Brothers began the Battle Against Autism with two goals --
First, to raise awareness and acceptance of those living with autism.
Second, to support the autism program at The Emerge Center, an early-intervention program for young children in Baton Rouge.
Since then, the annual Battle Against Autism car raffle has played a vital role in the transformation and growth of The Emerge Center.
Just look at what the support of our community has done...and imagine what more we can do!
Join the battle buy purchasing a raffle ticket to win a 2017 Lincoln MKZ and give more children a chance to thrive.
All funds raised will continue to benefit the autism program at Emerge, allowing them to reach more children in need.
