17th Annual Ante Up For Autism

ante_up_for_autism_2023_001.jpgThe Ante Up For Autism annual event took place again in late September to raise money for TACA (The Autism Community in Action).

Kathryn attended the event with her two boys, both of whom have autism.  Nearly $1m was raised so far at this year’s charity auction.

Having been thrust into the world of autism by her family situation has become and advocate for the condition, having set up her own organisation, The Savants, and is an Ambassador for TACA.

A bunch of photos of Kathryn at the event can now be found in the KM UK Gallery HERE.

16th Annual Ante Up For Autism

ante_up_for_autism_2022_012.jpgKathryn and family attended the latest Ante Up For Autism event last September (2022).

It is primarily a charity auction in aid of TACA (The Autism Community in Action) with prizes and awards given.  Apparently over $1m was raised so congratulations to all involved.

As well as more than 20 photos of Kathryn at the event (all HERE in the KM UK Gallery of course) we also have a link to a video by Autism Live where Kathryn and her sons are interviewed on the red carpet.  We’ve linked directly to the part where Kathryn enters HERE.

Thanks to Karen for passing along some details.

Update:  The gentlemen in the photo above, and also several of the photos in the linked gallery, is Johnathon Schaech.  He’s an actor and a long standing supporter of autism action.  He was in Cold Case episode Libertyville (season 6, episode 19) where he played the murder victim.  Johnathon’s wife, Julie Solomon, worked in the business that is show for a number of years, primarily as a location coordinator, but seems to be an ‘influencer’ now.  They have two children.

Ante Up For Autism 2019

ante_up_for_autism_2019_001.jpgA few weeks ago we posted a few images of Kathryn and kids at a recent Ante Up For Autism funding raising event.

They came as something as a pleasant surprise as they’d got passed us at the time.

Stumbling across those photos did send me down something of a rabbit hole. though

Be vewy, vewy quiet, I’m hunting wabbits! :-)

Didn’t find any rabbits.  Got something much, much better….  A couple of really great photos of Kathryn at the previous Ante Up For Autism event in 2019.  She looks knock-out in red on the red carpet.

Check out the second of the two photos in the KM UK the Gallery.  Kathryn looks a little more wind swept in that one.

Savants – Kathryn’s Autism Initiative

poster_001.jpgAfter such a long period of silence today has suddenly got quite noisy.

However, we need to make sure that that noise is appropriate for all those around us though.

Today (20th Oct 2021) Kathryn launched her own initiative called The Savants aimed at helping parents of children with autism.

Kathryn’s twin boys, Rocco and Jameson, both have autism.  When Kathryn discovered her children were autistic she found herself initially lost as to what to do.  People did reach out with advice and information which helped, but you always can also use more.  Wanting to raise awareness and make sure that all parents have the help and the resources they need, Kathryn has set up the website The Savants.

Kathryn appeared on the Today morning TV show in the US to discuss her project.  She has also written an article explaining further which you can on the shows website HERE.  The page also has a video of the interview.

One of the sources of help Kathryn mentions is The Autism Community In Action (TACA) group.  Their website is HERE.

A copy of Kathryn’s artcle can be found on HERE on KM UK.

Celebrity Kart Racing Toy Drive – Dec 2007 – Lap 2

toy_drive_017I[t] coulda been a contender!

toy_drive_007KM UK’s 2015 Advent Calendar is themed around the Where’s Wally/Waldo? book idea.  Each daily image is of Kathryn in one of her minor film roles and (sort of) obscured in the picture.  If public appearance photos had been included I could have used the one above.  OK, she’s not exactly hidden but she’s not the only one with long blonde hair in it either :-)

toy_drive_002Every so often I like to revisit an old public appearance with an update of new or improved photos.  If possible I make them date appropriate.  This celebrity karting event in aid of the Marine Toys For Tots Foundation took place on December the 2nd in 2007.  Eight years and two days ago!

You can read more about the event in the last post about it in 2012 here.  In the meantime enjoy the three large images you can see around this article that have now been added to the Gallery.
