A lot of celebrities seem to be able to look beyond their own fame and fortune and put their famous faces to use raising money for good causes. Actor and comedian Jack Black has been around on the charity poker fundraiser scene for a number of years now, and will host Renal Support Network’s 4th Annual Celebrity Poker Texas Hold-em Tournament in November this year. He’ll co-host the event with Kyle Gass of Tenacious D. This party is sure to be a bonanza, putting the lifestyle at Casino Tropez online into perspective!
Black has been taking part in different poker charity fundraisers over the years and was part of the All-in to Win for Hope no limit Texas Hold’em Celebrity Poker Tournament in 2011 at Commerce Casino in California. Lots of other celebrities take part in similar fundraiser gambling events throughout the year. It’s a great way for celebs to get behind their favourite causes, as their presence at these kind of events not only gives the possibility of winning cash for their preferred charity, but it also gives the charitable organisations great publicity and increases awareness of the diseases and issues that the charities exist to tackle.
Earlier this month a whole host of celebrities took part in Get Lucky for Lupus LA!, to support the Lupus LA charity. Those attending the event included musicians Macy Gray, Bobby Brown and Howie Dorough (Backstreet Boys), as well as actors Mekhi Phifer (ER), Rich Sommer (Mad Men) and Gilles Marini (Sex and The City).
Poker tournaments seems to be a fundraiser of choice for many celebs – maybe it’s the combination of showing off their poker playing skills and being able to do good at the same time that appeals to them. And although poker might offer a mental challenge for a player, it’s bound to be easier than the more physical challenges – like running a marathon – that you could take part in to raise money for charity!
