ACT Today for Autism!


Autism Care and Treatment Today! is launching the first national campaign to benefit military families with autistic children in Newport Beach on Saturday.

Hosted in a Newport Beach home (2006 Marlin Way), the non-profit is hosting a food and wine tasting launch party for the new campaign titled, “ACT Today! For Military Families.” Concerned that health insurance for the military only covers a fraction of the research-suggested intensive therapy needed for autistic children, the campaign hopes to bridge the gap for military families until the policy can be addressed.

The event on Saturday will include 25 Young’s Market wineries and delicious local eateries such as The Newport Rib Company, The Arches, Blue Water Grill, Soprano’s and Haute Cakes. Sponsored by Operation Help a Hero, Families of Active Military and Warrior Mommies, entertainment will be provided by Mark Wood.

Hoping to engage and educate about this important cause, ACT Today! will also give guests the opportunity to be among the first to view the organization’s upcoming PSA.  Featuring the star of “Criminal Minds”’ veteran Joe Mantegna, who has a daughter with autism, it is scheduled to air on major news networks.

The goal of the launch party is to raise more than $50,000.  Tickets are $100 per person.  To purchase tickets, visit or contact Laura Marroquin at 714.546.4431 or at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
