WPT Playing for a Better World series to launch at The Bazaar by José Andrés and SLS Hotel Beverly Hills

World Poker Tour (WPT), the premier name in internationally televised poker and entertainment, has announced the launch of WPT Foundation, an organization dedicated to utilizing WPT's unmatched platform to influence positive change in the world. WPT Foundation will initially support nonprofit programs in the areas of environment, human rights, hunger, and poverty and today announces its world-class charitable partners as Conservation International, Enough Project, We Advance and World Central Kitchen. Beyond contributing extensive cast, brand, media and corporate resources, WPT has committed an additional $100,000 cash donation to the WPT Foundation.

The core of WPT Foundation's fundraising will be a series of philanthropic poker events called WPT Playing for a Better World. The kickoff event will take place at SLS Hotel Beverly Hills and the adjoining Bazaar by José Andrés restaurant on March 11, 2012. This exclusive inaugural affair will bring together A-list celebrities, Hollywood power brokers and some of the biggest names in poker as they help raise money and create awareness for WPT Foundation's global charity partners. Providing the menu and food for the occasion will be world-renowned chef José Andrés, who recently won the coveted James Beard Outstanding Chef Award for 2011.

The celebrity host committee includes Maria Bello, Gerard Butler, Don Cheadle, Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, Eva Longoria, Joel Madden and Nicole Richie, Jeremy Piven, Andrea Savage, Rob Riggle, Sophie Winkleman, Frederick Windsor, Robin Wright and many others soon to be announced. The hosts and other attendees will get to test their poker skills against and win poker lessons from the world's greatest players including Mike Sexton, Daniel Negreanu, Dan Harrington, Antonio Esfandiari, Vanessa Selbst, Tony G., Jamie Gold, Maria Ho, Tony Dunst, Andy Frankenberger and other famous professionals.

The star-studded evening will feature a set of training sessions from poker greats, followed by a round-robin style poker event, a raffle and auction with one-of-a-kind and exclusive items such as private poker lessons from the game's legends, a private tasting party from Casa Dragones, an in-home session of WPT Boot Camp, a cabin on a WPT cruise, a deluxe helicopter tour of Los Angeles for three provided by ROTOR F/X LLC, the chance to join Fox Sports film crew at an NFL game

Did I somehow miss this. Been in and out of Docs offices and missed coming on. If they did the Poker thingy. Hope it was successful. Gerry can do almost anything. Anxious to see some of his movies. On the list on Amazon.com for Machine Gun Preacher and Coriolanus. Hope they are coming soon. Not allowed while treating to go to movie show...waiting for DVDs.. Hugs :tantrum: :kiss: Donna Jean and George and clan
