Love Poker? Charitable Celebs? Helping children? Three of our favorites come together on Saturday, October 17th.

Join us for the first annual Celebrity Poker Tournament benefitting the kids of The Children’s Institute!

Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actress Camryn Manheim will be hosting the event, and our roster of confirmed celebs includes Maria Bello, Dean Cain, Neil Patrick Harris, Jolely Fisher, Tony Dennison, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Willie Garson, Jamie Kennedy, Ricki Lake and Kevin Nealon just to name a few. This red-carpet event has already attracted high-profile No Limit Hold’em poker enthusiasts and celebrities. Lunch and cocktails will be provided. Initial buy-in is $250 to play and includes a player seat and lunch. Re-buys of $100 will be available at the first three levels only. Spectator seats are $75 and include entrance into the event and lunch.

Prizes? You bet. The Final 10 each receive a prize. Play to win $5,000 cash, a seat at the 2010 WPT Invitational, a business-class personal computer system and more! Players and spectators can also bid on many more fantastic prizes in the event’s Silent Auction, including time with yours truly. Moved by CII’s therapeutic and preventative programs supporting a mission against child abuse, I’ve donated a training package to be auctioned to the highest bidder.

To keep this an intimate affair, the event is capped at 300, so grab your tickets today and save the date!
