A host of celebrities attended the 5th annual Denim and Diamonds for Autism event hosted by ACT Today! (Autism Care and Treatment Today) on Saturday, October 23, in Hidden Hills, California.

ACT Today! is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to provide resources and support for children with autism, whose families cannot afford the necessary tools their child needs to reach their highest potential or live a productive life.

The event included an outdoor cocktail hour, dinner buffet, fashion show, silent & live auction, and live entertainment. Among the stars who attended were Bones’ David Boreanaz, George Clinton (Singer/“Father of Funk”), Grammy-winning artist Macy Gray, actor Max Ryan (“Sex and the City:2”), Adrienne Maloof-Nassif (“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”), Marcus Allen (Super Bowl Champion/TV Personality), Wilmer Valderrama (“That 70’s Show”), Brandi Cyrus (Singer/Actor), Greg Grunberg (Actor, “Heroes”), Tom Bergeron (Host, “Dancing With the Stars”), Marla Maples, Marissa Jaret Winokur, corporate and community leaders, parents of children with autism, and other supporters.
