     Beginning on Monday, April 14, "Night Of Too Many Stars" will be

 proceeds from the $1.99 download will go directly to the charity. In

     "Night Of Too Many Stars" is sponsored by Toyota, Old Spice and SoBe
 Life Water.
 
     The October 2006 "Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Benefit For
 Autism Education" raised more than $2.5 million.
 
     "Night Of Too Many Stars" will benefit a variety of Autism education
 programs around the country. The funds raised will support educational
 facilities that have recently opened or are about to open their doors,
 along with those already 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.
