Charity Lives at ACT Today!'s 3rd Annual Fundraising Luncheon!
On Monday May 2, 2011 the Charity Lives campaign supported the 3rd Annual ACT Today! event taking place at The Resort at Pelican Hill, Newport Coast, California. ACT Today! brought together the philanthropic community of Orange County with the goal of celebrating mothers and daughters while highlighting the women and organizations involved in the fight against autism.
Guests were treated to the luxuries of Orange County with a beach terrace reception, live entertainment, silent auction, and specialty cocktails served by Pelican Hill Resort staff. Guests mingled and enjoyed the sharing of inspirations as the event brought together the influencing ladies of Orange County. Special guest and keynote speaker Katherine Schwarzenegger was on hand during the reception to sign her newest book "Rock What You've Got", while greeting and taking photos with those in attendance.
The coastal reception was followed by the ACT Today! luncheon held in The Resort's Ball Room. Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson (Executive Director of ACT Today) introduced honorary guests and presented the Fearless Mothers Award honoring some of OC's fearless women, like Becky Estepp, Founder of TACA (Talk About Curing Autism) who was recognized for her tireless efforts for families living with autism. The luncheon was a great success, celebrating the true spirit of Mothers Day while helping to raise over $40,000 in support of children with autism.
