Among the stars participating in the tournament are: Billy Burke (“Twilight”), Willie Garson (“Sex & The City”), Rex Linn (“CSI: Miami”), Tony Denison (“Major Crimes”), and Matthew Willig (“We’re The Millers”).
Fans can participate by playing poker at the actual event or by sponsoring their favorite stars via the peacefundpoker.org website.

“Wells Bring Hope is honored to have been selected by Adrian Paul, and the PEACE Fund, as a beneficiary of this exciting event,” said Wells Bring Hope founder Barbara Goldberg. “We appreciate their support and Microsoft’s involvement in helping us bring safe drinking water and sanitation to rural villages in Niger, West Africa. The event promises to be highly entertaining and we urge everyone to come out and support it.”
