WACO, Texas (KWTX) The second annual Crappie King's Kids Fishing Day was held out at Twin Bridges pavilion on Lake Waco.

Kids were invited to fish, play in bounce houses, and enjoy boat rides.

Families could bid on items in an auction and also make donations to the Heart of Autism charity.

"There is a lot of kids out there and people don’t know they have autism," says Administrator Danny Tinsley.

Tinsley hopes the event not only raises money for the disorder, but also awareness.

"It’s an on-going thing and they all need equipment and resources, and hopefully the money we generate here will go for that," he said.
