Isabella Emporium Sponsors ACT Today’s 7th Annual Denim & Diamonds for Autism Fundraiser

ACT Today! (Autism Care and Treatment Today!), a national non-profit organization whose mission is to provide access to care and treatment to children with autism, announces Isabella Emporium is a proud sponsor of ACT Today!’s 7th Annual Denim & Diamonds for Autism fundraiser, benefiting children with autism. The event will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California and will honor actor Joe Mantegna (“Criminal Minds”), KCBS 2 and KCAL 9’s President and General Manager Steve Mauldin, and community activist Kathleen Sternbach. Over 500 guests are expected to attend the red carpet fundraiser, including corporate leaders, celebrities, dignitaries and other autism supporters.
