Rock Around The Dock



Story and photography by Gay Lyons

The Shrimp Dock was rockin’ at the fifth Annual “Rock Around the Dock for Autism,” a Margaritaville-style event that included live entertainment, beer and wine, an authentic Cajun shrimp boil prepared by Shrimp Dock owner Phil Dangle and his crew and a silent auction. Casually dressed guests socialized at picnic tables and enjoyed the balmy spring evening. Lending their presence to the occasion were Oz, Shoe and Jake James from 94.2 and WBIR’ s Rebecca Sweet who was there with her family including baby daughter Lauren. Proceeds benefit the Autism Society of East Tennessee.

The Autism Society of East Tennessee is a community-based organization that improves the lives of all persons impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorders. It envisions a community that supports and shows compassion to those affected by autism by providing accessibility through collaboration, education and support services
