Talk About Curing Autism to Host Southern California Celebrity Gala

COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Jenny McCarthy, actress, comedian and model will co-host a major fundraiser to benefit families affected by autism with Lance Armstrong, seven-time Tour de France champion road racing cyclist.

McCarthy and Armstrong host the celebrity-packed evening Ante Up for Autism, at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California on Friday, October 3, 2008. Joining the co-hosts will be a line up of sports celebrities including Ryan Scheckler, Jim Everett, Tony Hawk, Brian Lopes, Jeremy McGrath and more. The formal evening of cocktails, dinner and entertainment will be highlighted by a poker tournament and casino venue provided by Commerce Casino.

McCarthy stated, "TACA was one of the first organizations I encountered that gave me hope. Their message was positive and they helped convince me that outcomes for children with autism can be positive. Once I found TACA I didn't feel so alone. Now my son, Evan, is doing remarkably well and it is my turn to help TACA." McCarthy is the author of Louder Than Words - A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism which chronicles her experiences and healing philosophies as a parent of a child with autism.

Co-host Lance Armstrong commented, "With one in every 150 children being diagnosed, autism is becoming an epidemic that can't be ignored any longer. I see daily, how hard my friends have to struggle to get proper care and support for their children. I'm pleased to join TACA and Jenny McCarthy in co-hosting Ante Up for Autism."
