Shah-Autism Rocks

A new charity event is in the Dubai area and it’s called Autism Rocks. Autism Awareness is making its way to Dubai on April 2nd, and it will produce a fun-filled day for many to help raise awareness. Flo Rida and Tyga will be performing live at the event to help raise money for research and development regarding the special needs condition. Sanjay Shah Denmark and his wife, Usha are behind the special event and the ones that have founded the organization called Autism Rocks. Their youngest son, who was two at the time, was diagnosed with autism. At the time, they weren’t sure what they should do or how they can help until they came up with the idea to create a foundation that could help raise money for the cause. They hope to make a difference in the lives of others who struggle with the condition, and by raising money from the charity, they can donate it to different areas that can help.

Autism Rocks was founded in 2014 by Sanjay Shah after an afternoon visit from a long-time friend, Snoop Dogg. Shah had owned a series of businesses and one in particular had been doing really well. The company was called Solo Capital, and it really took off in the financial investment world allowing Shah to be able to semi-retire and really focus his efforts on other areas he was interested in, such as the charity event Autism Rocks. After founding the charity, he went to work staging concerts around the world with some of the most famous musicians around like Snoop Dogg, Lenny Kravitz and Michael Buble.

Shah originated from Kenya, and moved to Central London to attend King’s College where he began to study medicine. He soon decided that it wasn’t for him, and he change his career to become more focused in the accounting and financial side of the world.

Autism Rocks has become a very successful charity even that has helped raise thousands of dollars that have been donated to research. While they understand there is currently no cure for autism, they are excited and happy to be able to donate and aid in the research and developmental side of the neurological condition that has affected so many people.
