What's TACA?

Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) is a national non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting families affected by autism. For families who have just received the autism diagnosis, TACA aims to speed up the cycle time from the autism diagnosis to effective treatments. 

TACA helps to strengthen the autism community by connecting families and the professionals who can help them, allowing them to share stories and information to help improve the quality of life for people with autism.

This year, Title Co-Sponsors include Happy Families and Josh and Courtney Ungaro. Co-Presenting sponsors include Ira Hermann, CLU, ChFC, and Capstone Partners, Financial & Insurance Services, LLC. Guests, sponsors, celebrities and poker professionals will come together for a casino-themed fundraiser hosted by TACA. 

Join them for dinner, silent auctions and friendly poker games, all of which will raise money to provide Real Help Now for families affected by this prevalent and underfunded disease. All proceeds benefit TACA families.
