ACT Today! (Autism Care and Treatment Today!), a national non-profit organization headquartered in Tarzana, California and founded by CARD’s Executive Director Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, plans to make its most highly talked about fundraiser, 6th Annual Denim & Diamonds for Autism, go to the dogs. Throughout the year, ACT Today! gets inundated with requests for assistance dogs from families of children with autism. The need has grown so great, that the premiere event, known for its glitz and glamour, celebrity support and corporate sponsors, will include a paddle auction, which will specifically raise funds for assistance dogs for 12 children with autism from around the country. Arizona Goldens LLC, a non-profit organization that places its dogs in the homes of children with special needs, will feature several of its Golden Retrievers at the event. The event, co-hosted by Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh and ACT Today!’s Executive Director Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson, will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2011 at the historic Ahmanson Ranch, located at 25345 Mureau Road, in Calabasas, California from 5pm to 11pm.
