The idea is the brainchild of actor Ed Asner of “Mary Tyler Moore” and “Lou Grant” fame. His son Matt works for Autism Speaks.

The fundraiser is expected to go from Dec. 3 – 9.MORE NEWS: Smokey Southland Skies Caused By Wildfires Burning In Northern And Central California Spur Air Quality Concerns
