I had the pleasure of attending the Four Kings & an Ace Charity Poker Tournament in Beverly Hills, presented by World Poker Tour (WPT) Foundation, benefiting Mending Kids — a beautiful evening with an incredible purpose.
Poker is one of the greatest ways to raise money for charitable causes and it is nights like these that are some of the greatest reward in my career, meeting admirable people from around the world who dedicate their lives to those in need.
Mending Kids provides access to surgical care for thousands of children in over 60 countries. Requiring surgery for yourself or your child is stressful enough as it is… adding the stress of not having access to the procedure would be unbearable.
We saw loads of generous people reaching into their pockets for unlimited rebuys at the poker table, Gene Simmons donating $25,000, and Mel Gibson putting his hand up for a $100,000 donation on top of all the wonderful support he has given Mending Kids for the past 10 years. Wow!
A super successful night to help hundreds more children get the surgical care they need!
