Poker for Charity

Who doesn't love a good game of poker? Especially when you’re playing with celebrities like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon and the proceeds are going to charity.

Affleck, Damon, Adam Sandler, Ray Romano, George Lopez and Jason Alexander all joined the no-limit Texas Hold'Em game at the Rio Pavilion, Las Vegas, which will help benefit the Darfur region of Sudan.

The second annual "Ante Up For Africa" event organized by Don Cheadle raised $850,000 last year. This year, the entrance fee for the event was $5,000, with all proceeds going to the Not On Our Watch organization.
