This past weekend the Hollyscoop gals were invited to a Celebrity Poker Tournament organized to helped benefit the Los Angeles Youth Network. The “All In For The Kids” benefit raised over $50,000 towards building new housing facilities and schools for homeless kids.
The event was held and partly sponsored by Crystal Casino and brought in stars such as Mira Sorvino who we spotted with her husband and adorable daughter, the very pregnant Brooke Burke with her fiancé David Charvet. We chatted with My Greek Fat Wedding Star Nia Vardalos who was extremely sweet. Estella Warren was also there posing for the cameras while under the influence.
Pro poker player Annie Duke attended the event with boyfriend Joe Reitman. Around 2AM Joe took victory in the tournament claiming first place. Actor Shaun Toub came in at 3rd. We hear NYPD Blue star Henry Simmons came and made a quick donation with a few zeros behind it. Other stars in attendance were Blu Cantrell, Backstreet Boy AJ McLean, 24 star Roger Cross, Barry Williams, Tina Yothers, Matt Cedeno, Kathy Najimy, Ron Jeremy and pro poker player Brett Jungblut.
The event also had a gifting suite which celebrities received items such as dresses made by Hale Bob (as seen on Mira Sorvino), Osiris Shoes, Matt and Nat Handbags, Jewelry by Heather Hyde, Von Dutch Custom Eyes Sunglasses, Expecting Fitness (book and vitamins), Giantto Watches and Aston’s Nightwear T’s.
Overall it was a fun night all for a great cause. Other sponsors from the event include Svedka Vodka, Card Player Magazine, Poker Blue www.pokerblue.com, Crunch Fitness, American Airlines, Best Buy, Focus Fish and Red Balloon Art.
