Also my time zone is (GMT -7) Arizona, it never follow day light saving time.
I mean time in AZ never changes( even in Mountain time some areas follow day light saving).

Or if you have a datetime object just do a yourdatetime.ToUniversalTime that handles all that daylight savings stuff as well

Technofile's on the right track, except CDate is a VB function, no such thing in C#. ;)

If you have the string "2009-11-24 01:15:00" then you need to convert it to a DateTime object, using DateTime.Parse, then call .ToUniversalTime() on that DateTime object:
DateTime utc = DateTime.Parse("2009-11-24 01:15:00").ToUniversalTime();

If you already have a DateTime object, all you need is to call .ToUniversalTime():
DateTime utc = myDateTimeObject.ToUniversalTime();
