So, the AC on the show Heroes, Greg Cohen, decided to have a huge star-studded fundraiser for autism. He organized the entire event as a volunteer. That means he’s not drawing a paycheck from this…which makes him our hero. All proceeds go to Autism Speaks and the show is this upcoming weekend.

Music, celebrities – cocktails – cocktail hour with celebrities. If there’s another way to raise money for a cause – we’re not aware of it.

Hosted by Rainn Wilson (from The Office) Wendy & Lisa will headline the evening with an all-star band, including Nikka Costa and Sheryl Crow.
