The fifth anniversary installment of TWAB gets under way at the Elks Club, 380 Social St., on Saturday from 6 p.m. to midnight, with a pasta dinner. There will also be music and raffles, with all the proceeds going to raise awareness about autism in partnership with The Autism Project of Rhode Island.
