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.
Autism affects one in 110 children in America. It is more prevalent than pediatric cancer, juvenile diabetes and AIDS combined.
“We know our efforts will help those children whose families cannot afford to provide them with the necessary care and treatment they need,” says Greg Anderson, ACT Today! Board member and Managing Partner of TWIW Insurance Services, LLC.
“Together, we can help raise awareness to fight this devastating disorder,” says Won-G, International Hip Hop Artist, Founder of Sovage Premium Denim and ACT Today!’s International Ambassador. “Together we can create change in the lives of those children affected by autism.”
