14th Annual Denim, Diamonds, and Stars Gala
The red carpet was rolled out once again at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village as some of Hollywood’s most recognizable stars, families impacted by autism, and philanthropic members of the community joined together for the 14th Annual Denim, Diamonds, and Stars Gala to support Autism Care Today—the nation’s leading autism nonprofit organization providing support to children with autism and their families.
Festivities included a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, live entertainment, gourmet dinner catered by Four Seasons’ award-winning chefs, and special tributes to 2019 ACT Today honorees. This year’s honorees were Doreen Granpeesheh, founder of ACT Today and founder and CEO of CARD; Erin Murphy, autism activist and autism parent; and Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson, ACT Today executive director emeritus. Since 2005, ACT Today has helped more than 1,500 families around the county and distributed over $1.85 million in grants. For more information, visit act-today.org.
