Beverly Hills: More than 200 celebrities at the third charity tournament

If poker is a real livelihood for some, many players appreciated this game for its entertaining side. Last week, many of the famous American celebrities met at Beverly Hills Hotel for the third annual charity event organized around a Texas Hold'em poker tournament. The purpose of this event was to raise funds for the improvement of education associations such as the Alliance for College Ready Schools, the Richard Merkin Middle School and the United Friends of Children. This event brought together more than 200 guests made up of celebrities like Powers Boothe, Dennis Haysbert, Gabriel Aubry, Vinnie Jones, Kelly Hu, James Remar, Matt Craven, Richard Karn, Chris Rich, governor Gray Davis, governor Michael Leavitt and his wife, Mayor Richard Riordan and philanthropists as Eli Broad and Michael Milken.
