LOS ANGELES, Sept 25, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Members of the Motorcycle Charity Associates, (M.C.A.) were asked about their concerns this year and where they felt the most assistance was needed for their charitable efforts. An overwhelming decision to recognize Autism as the nation's fastest growing developmental disability came to the forefront of the discussion. With more children facing diagnosis with autism this year than cancer, diabetes, Downs Syndrome and AIDS combined and receiving less than 5% of the funding provided to other childhood disorders, M.C.A. knew where to focus.
On October 4th, M.C.A. will host the 2nd Annual Hollywood Leather Meets Lace Ride benefiting Generation Rescue. The foundation is an international movement of scientists, physicians and parent-volunteers researching the causes and treatments for autism and helping more than 20,000 children begin biomedical treatment. The event begins at 9am on Hollywood Blvd's Walk of Fame, motorcycle enthusiasts and celebrities will join together to ride for Generation Rescue to support families and children with Autism. Later that evening, the event moves to the famed Playboy Mansion where Jenny McCarthy, board member, spokesperson and mother warrior for Generation Rescue will host the 2nd Annual Leather Meets Lace event.
"Jenny McCarthy has made such an impact in so many lives through her work as an author, activist, spokesperson and board member of 'Generation Rescue' that we felt compelled to continue to raise awareness and funding for this amazing foundation," states Billy Gordon, founder of M.C.A. "What more meaningful and beautiful place to bring her message than the Playboy Mansion, among friends and fellow supporters?"
Last year MCA brought the fantasy of charitable giving to the Playboy Mansion with the inaugural Leather Meets Lace charitable event. This year, the tradition continues as Motorcycle Charity Associates, Inc (M.C.A.) continues to strategize, market and coordinate fundraising events for worthwhile 501 (3) charities throughout the year.
"Generation Rescue will forever be in our hearts and on our minds as we dedicate our efforts this year to the future of children diagnosed with Autism." Gordon remarks. Generation Rescue is letting the world know that there are effective medical treatments today and more are being researched.
