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.
The event featured beer, brats, and sumo wrestling. CRASD chairman Rick Alexander of Sperry Van Ness commercial real estate and ATFP Director of programs Lisa Kaufmann MC’d the event. Special thanks to SDAR’s government affairs director Sherry Hodges for inviting Diane to speak and the folks at Oakwood Escrow for covering the charitable event for Oakwood TV.
