Ante up for Autism will be co-hosted by Lance Armstrong and Jenny McCarthy – proceeds will benefit Talk about Curing Autism (TACA)

Center Line, Mich. — Team Mopar®’s two-time Formula Drift champion Samuel Hübinette will join forces with event co-hosts Lance Armstrong and Jenny McCarthy to help raise funds in the fight against autism at the 2nd Annual Ante up for Autism charity event. Featuring a charity poker tournament as well as live and silent auctions, the event is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 3 at the St. Regis Hotel in Monarch Beach, Calif.
Hübinette is one of the celebrity contestants in the poker tournament. He also provided two valuable auction items — a spot as an honorary pit crew member on his Mopar NuFormz Racing Dodge Viper SRT10® team and a live drift ride-along in his Mopar-powered machine at the Red Bull Drifting World Championships in Long Beach, Calif. on Nov. 15–16.
“If I can use any celebrity I may have gained as a Formula D driver to aid other people through my involvement in an extreme motorsport like drifting, then I’m all for it,” said Hübinette, who is second in the Formula D standings heading into the final event.
Event proceeds will benefit Talk about Curing Autism (TACA), a non-profit organization that provides information, resources and support to families affected by autism. TACA works to strengthen the U.S. autism community by connecting families and the professionals who help them. TACA currently serves almost 10,000 families with much needed programs, educational services and support.
Hübinette is thrilled to be able to participate in the event and help contribute to a worthwhile organization like TACA.
“We can really do some good,” observed Hübinette. “Autism affects many, many families and an estimated one million people in the U.S. have autism. This will be a good event to create awareness and bring in money to help support TACA. By auctioning off a ride-along with me in my Mopar Dodge Viper SRT10, we can hopefully bring in some funds for this worthwhile cause.”
