Done Deal

More than 300 guests enjoyed doubling down at Talk About Curing Autism’s—aka TACA—fifth annual all-star poker night at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort. Celebs glammed up the red carpet while world-champ athletes like snowboarding pro Gretchen Bleiler offered personalized gear for the silent auction. Poker pros joined wannabe winners for Texas Hold ’em—and Chuck Smith of Seal Beach took home the pot. The real winners, however, were the TACA kids and their parents—the event raised more than $250,000 for the nonprofit. Photos by Josh Johnson
