Tonight the Autism Speaks organization held its second annual “Blue Tie – Blue Jean” Ball in Beverly Hills and Allie Is Wired was in attendance!

The ball, which was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, was being held in honor of The Guess? Foundation for its dedication to Autism.

Autism Speaks is the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization. It is dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism.

The Blue Tie Blue Jean Ball has become the organization’s signature event in Los Angeles.

The annual event kicked off with a packed red carpet featuring stars from television’s hottest shows!

Some celebrities to grace the carpet tonight included James Van Der Beek (Don’tTrust The B… In Apartment 23), Nikki Reed (The Twilight Saga), and Dr. Paul Nassif (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills).
