Nancy Grace joins Golden Retrievers to Help Children With Autism

Nancy Grace with Florence Henderson at Denim  and Diamonds,  Autism  Event

At the recent, ACT Today (Autsim Care and Treatment) 6th Annual Denim and Diamonds celebrity fundraiser, in Calabasas, California, high wattage humans like, Nancy Grace, Leeza Gibbons, Brooke Burke, Florence Henderson, Julie Moran and Tom Bergeron mingled and sipped and supped and raised over $200,000!

Among the honorees were canine guests, The Arizona Goldens, LLC- an amazing group of Golden Retrievers, specially trained to assist children with Autism to improve behavior, social skills and reduce stress, among other benefits.  The training process includes a 2 week in-home 1 on 1 experience and the service placement is paid for by donations through individual and group fundraisers like ACT Today, chaired by Nancy Aspaugh, former executive producer of the Leeza show.

Arizona Golden and handler, Bob on the red carpet.

I wasn't able to attend (time out for being naughty- sorry, no details for now).  It looked like a great evening-3 snorts for the Goldens!
