This extremely popular family event sells out each year, and this year more than 1,000 families with autistic children attended the event. The picnic for children affected by autism is a primary fundraiser to help TACA continue to provide important services to families affected by autism. McCarthy, who recently authored a new book Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism held a book signing during the event and was recently named as the spokesperson for TACA.
In her new role as spokesperson, McCarthy will also be hosting the Ante Up for Autism Fundraiser presented by TACA in partnership with the Orange County Business Group on October 20, 2007 at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, CA. This worthy event promises to attract a number of celebrities including World Series of Poker champion Daniel Negreanu. With only 240 general admission tickets available, the Ante Up for Autism event is sure to be a sell-out. General admission tickets include access to an exclusive pre-event with Jenny McCarthy where she will speak about autism and her new book. If you’re feeling lucky, 90 tournament tickets are available for this event, which includes a seat in the poker tournament and admission to the “best practices” poker lecture given by professional poker players. To purchase tickets please visit: Ante Up For Autism.
