"Night Of Too Many Stars" is sponsored by Chevrolet, Amp'd Mobile and Intel Core2Duo.

"Night Of Too Many Stars" will benefit the Alpine Learning Group, the New York Center for Autism Charter School and other Autism education programs. The funds raised will support educational facilities that have recently opened or are about to open their doors along with those very well-established model schools that are now developing innovative programs to provide vocational and life skills for adults with autism. Proceeds will also support outreach programs that provide training and consultation to families of very young children in their homes. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks, the nation's leading autism advocacy group.
