Charity Report: Cartwright to Host Fourth Happy House Benefit April 25

Share this
Poker tournaments hosted by Nancy Cartwright always bring the celebrities and poker excitement together for a good cause. And that is the intention of Cartwright as she prepares to host the Fourth Annual Happy House Poker Tournament and BBQ on Saturday, April 25th at her Los Angeles home.

Cartwright may be best known for her Emmy award-winning work as the voice of Bart Simpson on The Simpsons television show, and she is also the Honorary Mayor of the North Valley in Northridge, California. But she also embraces and works hard to raise funds and awareness for several causes near and dear to her heart, one of which is Happy House, an organization that works toward making families better and communities safer.

The April 25th event will take place at the Cartwright home, the address of which will be provided upon the RSVP and confirmation, with festivities beginning at 1:00pm and running until approximately 6:00pm. (The poker tournament itself begins precisely at 1:00pm.) Those who wish to play in the poker tournament and enjoy the food and entertainment are asked to pay the $60 entry fee, though anyone who wishes to attend the party and refrain from any poker action is asked to pay $15. Kids are also welcome to attend, and those under 12 are free.

The no-limit hold’em tournament is reserved for adults only and will feature numerous prizes, including a seat at Brad Barrett’s own celebrity poker tournament for the Maximum Hope Foundation and Dream Foundation for the winner of the tournament.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Happy House, an organization founded by Cartwright and Hollywood writer/producer Rose Goss. The mission of the group is to create a healthier world where a sense of community and respect overrides fear and distrust in local neighborhoods. Happy House supports those doing good deeds in the community and does its part to create a safe environment for building better families.

To RSVP to the Fourth Annual Happy House Poker Tournament and BBQ, contact adam@happyhouse.org or call (818) 882-7483. And to find out more about Happy House as an organization, visit www.HappyHouse.org.
