Life, Autism & Advocacy...Hollywood Style!

Ed & Matt Asner  

5:30 pm VIP Reception, 7:00 pm Program

Moderated by: Bruce Winges, Editor, Akron Beacon Journal & Ohio.com

Ed Asner – The seven time Emmy-award winning star is most known for his role as Lou Grant on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, but he is also the proud father and grandfather of what he refers to as his “snowflakes,” five wildly different but beautiful young men on the autism spectrum. Matt Asner, Mr. Asner’s son, has three children with autism, and is Vice President of Development for the Autism Society of America. Moderated by Akron Beacon Journal editor Bruce Winges, join this conversation about life, autism, and advocacy…Hollywood style.

5:30pm VIP Reception includes preferred reserved seating, a photo with Ed Asner, heavy appetizers and (1) drink ticket for $50.


The event is followed by a Full Day Conference on Friday, October 13 at the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn that will focus on Effective Advocacy.  Learn more and Register at AutismAkron.org/Conference.
