Love, Hope and Healing: A Mother’s Day Luncheon

Parents and supporters of children with autism gathered for a special Love, Hope and Healing: A Mother’s Day Luncheon , held at The Resort at Pelican Hill on May 4th, in Newport Coast. The event was hosted by Autism Care and Treatment (ACT Today!).

“The gift of hope is the best gift a mother can receive. We wanted to show mothers of children on the autism spectrum love by treating her to a day of inspiration at one of the most beautiful resorts in the world,” says ACT Today!’s Executive Director Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson.

The ACT Today! fundraiser luncheon featured
Honorary Guests Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, a world renowned autism researcher and psychologist, who has recently been noted for her award-winning documentary “RECOVERED: Journeys Through the Autism Spectrum and Back” and fellow autism expert and biomedical clinician, Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet .

“As the mother of a son who’s recovered from autism, my heart goes out to families who are unable to afford treatments which will help their children,” says Event Producer Laura Marroquin. “It is a privilege to indirectly help by being part of this fabulous event.”

Sponsors of this event included David and Sandy Stone and Family, Newport / Naples Rib Companies, Oxy Health, and Reaction Audio Visual.
