STA Jets Stands with Autism Community, Donating a Luxury Jet Flight To Annual TACA Fundraiser

·2 min read

Local nonprofit promoting the issues of the autism community to receive an all-expenses-paid jet excursion to add to its 'Ante Up' auction

SANTA ANA, Calif., June 8, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- STA Jets has announced that it will be donating an all-expenses-paid jet charter to the Irvine-based nonprofit TACA (The Autism Community in Action). The luxury transportation will be included in TACA's 15th annual fundraising gala, Ante Up for Autism, as part of a silent auction package including a 3-night Napa getaway.

STA Jets and its Founder and CEO Kurt Belcher have consistently supported TACA and other local nonprofits from the very beginning in 2009. This will be the second such donation of a private jet charter, in addition to other sponsorships for the organization.

TACA's Ante Up for Autism is held annually, and has become a Southern California tradition. This year's gala and casino event will be held September 25, 2021 at the Waterfront Beach Resort, 21100 Pacific Coast Highway, Huntington Beach, CA 92648.

Today, the CDC estimates that 1 in 54 children in the United States has autism, a 178% increase since 2000. It's now more important than ever for families and communities to have increased access to support.

Belcher, whose connection to the autism community is personal, explained his support for TACA. "On a personal level, I sympathize with TACA's ongoing vision of helping every individual diagnosed with autism to lead an independent life. When my own daughter was diagnosed with autism, resources and support were the main things we were seeking. It's an honor to do our small part to support this work, and elevate the discussion about autism in our community and beyond."
