Stars Sign Up for Celebrity Poker

With a motley crew of over 100 stars from the screen and the world of poker, the World Poker Tour’s Celebrity Invitational will get underway tomorrow. The proceeds will go to Chrysalis, a charity that helps economically disadvantaged and homeless people find work. The guest list at Los Angeles’s Commerce Casino this weekend includes, among others, Marlon Wayans, Eric Dane, Hank Azaria, Teri Hatcher, and Ricki Lake. There is also a $200,000 prize pool that will go to the recipients’ various charitable organizations. The grand prize is a seat in the World Poker Tour’s Championship.
