Vegas, Baby!

| December 7, 2012 | Parties

Some 300 people put on their poker faces and headed to The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel for TACA’s Ante Up for Autism, a fundraiser that grossed more than $264,000, thanks to a bit of good-hearted gambling. Celebs like Kate Voegele and poker pros such as Chad Brown partied among the VIPs at the sold-out soirĂ©e, which rolled out the red carpet, served up cocktails and offered live and silent auctions. Oh, and about that friendly betting: The poker tourney was packed with players wagering their wealth, and Costa Mesa’s Shai Zahavi took home the winnings. Photography by Stephen Arias
