 SOUP KITCHEN SALOON HOSTS BLUES BLOWOUT
 TO RAISE MONEY FOR EQUIPMENT USED IN TREATING AUTISTIC CHILDREN
 DETROIT, Jan. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Shake off those post holiday blues at the Soup Kitchen Saloon in Detroit on Sunday, Jan. 12, from 4-9 p.m., and help raise money for equipment used in a new method of treating autistic children.
 Comedian Karl Anthony will headline the event, which includes five hours of comedy and music, from rock to traditional bluegrass. Other performers who have donated their time to this event include Dean Rutledge, singing with Hank Phillips and Lois Parent, D.E. Bott and the Hot Spot, Blue Suit with Nicki James and the Rarely Heard String Band. A large-screen television will be available for football fans.
 Celebrity hosts include actor Daven Kiley from "Chameleon Street" and Cheryl Angelelli, Miss Wheelchair Michigan and host of cable TV's "This Ability" show.
 The $10 cover charge is a donation to the Marie Carls Communication Disorders Center at Children's Hospital of Michigan. Funds will be used to purchase an auditory training device to help autistic children improve their ability to communicate with others.
 Autism is a neurological disorder that interferes with development of reasoning, social interaction and communication. Auditory training helps autistic children who are hypersensitive to certain sound frequencies become desensitized to those sounds. When the roadblock this distortion causes is removed, the children are able to learn and communicate more readily.
 Event organizer Dennis Debbaudt, whose 8-year-old son went through auditory training in Montreal last September, is excited about the prospect of bringing this new treatment method to the Detroit area.
 "We've seen some very positive changes in Kelly, and we want other families in the Detroit area to have the same opportunity we did. We're very fortunate that Children's Hospital has staff members who want to do research on auditory training. Children's is going to be on the cutting edge, helping develop this treatment method further."
 The benefit is co-sponsored by Children's Hospital of Michigan and the Michigan Society for Autistic Citizens.
