Help support this cause

Tonight Comedy Central is having a benefit for Autism education called the "Night Of Too Many Stars".

Here's some info about the program:

"The Night Of Too Many Stars" is Comedy Central's first live, on-air and online special event, Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Benefit for Autism Education will be held at New York City's Beacon Theatre on Sunday, October 15.

"Night of Too Many Stars" is designed to raise awareness of autism. This live performance 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.
