Share this
The Playboy Mansion is set to host the Third Annual Celebrity Poker Tournament and Casino Night on May 17th. The mansion, located in the Los Angeles area, will be prepared to welcome numerous celebrities and poker pros, and the night’s festivities will benefit the Urban Health Institute (UHI).

General admission for the evening is $500,
which includes all food and beverages. In addition, tours of the Playboy Mansion will be given by Playboy Playmates, and access will be granted to the Grotto for swimming and mingling. In order to play the tournament as well, a $1,500 buy-in is required and does include general admission. Tournament players will be eligible to win more than $50,000 in prizes. The first prize is a $10,000 seat into the 2008 World Series of Poker main event, and the second prize is a Bermuda vacation for two that includes travel and hotel accommodations. In addition, there will be a silent auction to raise additional funds for UHI.

Celebrities confirmed to attend include Doyle, Todd, and Pam Brunson, Hoyt Corkins, and Roy Winston.
Numerous Hollywood celebrities and sports stars have also been invited and tend to show up for charity events such as this in droves. Last year, Shannon Elizabeth won the tournament.

UHI is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to provide direct care, medicine, and medical equipment in response to natural and man-made disasters around the world.
