Classic rock songs will reverberate across Port Washington on March 21 at “Live from Sands Point! Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

This concert event will benefit Spectrum Designs Foundation and Nicholas Center, two Port Washington-based nonprofits that support and enrich the lives of individuals with autism. Guests will revel in the true rock experience, including paparazzi photo opportunities, live rock ‘n’ roll music, gourmet food, cocktails and dancing.

The concert experience will take place at the Village Club of Sands Point and will begin at 6:30 p.m. Guests are invited to dress like a rock star.

“We’re pulling out all the stops to make this a night to remember,” said Stella Spanakos, the co-founder and director of development of the Nicholas Center and co-founder of Spectrum Designs. “We invite our friends in the community to come together to hear some great rock and roll music and support those affected by autism.”

Since 2011, Spectrum Designs Foundation has made an impact in the lives of teens and young adults with autism through its social enterprise businesses – Spectrum Designs and Bakes and Suds, which reinvest financial returns into the community to fill a societal void.

Working together with its educational partner, Nicholas Center, the organizations offer vocational experiences and productive employment opportunities to more than 85 young men and women with autism. For event and ticket information, please visit: or, call 516-888-9635.
