Since 2006, "Night of Too Many Stars" has raised over $18 million. In 2012, "Night of Too Many Stars," through its partner organization New York Collaborates for Autism, gave almost $4 million in grants to 50 programs in 20 states.

Autism now affects an estimated 1 in 68 American children (1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls), a ten-fold increase in prevalence in 40 years. "Night of Too Many Stars" will benefit a variety of autism education and family service programs across the country, in support of the overabundance of individuals with autism and their families who so desperately need quality services.
