Chicago's own Jenny McCarthy wears many hats: model, comedian, actress, author.

Tuesday night, she appeared at a Chicago benefit as an activist.

McCarthy hosted the sixth annual "Rescue Our Angels" fundraising event for Generation Rescue.

She is president of the organization, which is a national autism support group.

McCarthy credits Generation Rescue with helping her get educated after her son was diagnosed with autism.
