Talk About Curing Autism to Host Phoenix Arizona Celebrity Gala

COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Matthew Kemp, centerfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers, will co-host a celebrity casino event to benefit families affected by autism with Dave Stewart, former pitcher for the Oakland A's and World Series MVP. Kemp also serves as a spokesperson for charity beneficiary, Talk About Curing Autism (TACA).

Kemp and Stewart host the celebrity-packed evening Ante Up for Autism, at the Penske Racing Museum in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday, March 14, 2009. Joining them will be a line-up of Major League Baseball's current players from the Dodgers, Angels, Oakland A's, San Francisco Giants and more. Also attending is this year's Hall of Fame Recipient, Rickey Henderson and Indy 500 race car driver Danica Patrick.

"TACA has changed my view of autism as a hopeless, incurable disorder," stated Kemp. "When my brother Carlton became one of more than 1.5 million people affected by autism it was a confusing blow to me. I have always wanted a little brother that I could play ball with, but Carlton's impaired ability to socially interact and communicate made it impossible for that to happen. TACA has given me hope that playing ball with him in the near future a possibility."

The formal evening of cocktails, dinner and entertainment will be highlighted by a professional casino venue inside the Penske Racing Museum in Phoenix, Arizona featuring poker celebrity and special guests Marcel Luske, Michelle Lau and others.

Proceeds from the event will fund educational programs and services for families affected by autism. TACA's goal is to raise more than $325,000, which was the amount raised at last year's sell out event.

Admission is limited. For information about Ante Up for Autism reservations and sponsorship opportunities, visit '/>"/>
