Harkey Kicks Off San Diego Commercial REALTORS® Oktoberfest Benefitting Autism Foundation

By Clare Michal

Diane helped kick off the Commercial Real Estate Alliance of San Diego’s (CRASD) 3rd annual Oktoberfest celebration. This event was more than just fun and food; it was a benefit for the Autism Tree Project Foundation (ATPF).

In 2003, Todd Hoff and his wife found out that their two year old son Garrett had Autism. From there they started the Autism Tree Project Foundation. The foundation provides early intervention preschool Autism screenings to children in San Diego and the Bay Area.
