Autism Care and Treatment Today! will launch a national campaign Saturday to benefit military families with autistic children.
Hosted in a Newport Beach home at 2006 Marlin Way, the nonprofit is hosting a food and wine tasting for "ACT Today! For Military Families." Concerned that health insurance for the military covers only 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 will include 25 Young's Market Company wineries and delicious local eateries such as the Newport Rib Company, the Arches, Bluewater Grill, Soprano's and Haute Cakes. Operation Help A Hero, For Families of Active Military and Warrior Mommies are sponsoring the event, and entertainment will be provided by Mark Wood.
