(ABC 6 News) -- It's the biggest event of the year for the RT Autism Foundation in Rochester.  And the guest of honor at the fourth annual "Mending Minds Gala" was actor Tom Wilson who played Biff in "Back to the Future."

He was one of several hundred guests there tonight.  There were great auction items available like Metrodome seats.  All of the money raised stays in Rochester. 

"The thing about an event like this on a night like this is how much people want to support kids with austism," Wilson said.  "This is about love really, isn't it? We're having fun, we're making people laugh...but its to raise money for a great cause."

In years past they've raised up to $60,000 just at this event alone.  To learn more about the RT Autism Foundation you can visit their website.
