Odds to Win Celebrity Poker Tournament for charity
Ben Affleck is helping to launch a virtual celebrity poker tournament on Saturday for charity — that will include players Tom Brady, Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon, Adam Levine, Adam Sandler, Jon Hamm, Sarah Silverman and other stars.
Affleck posted on Instagram on Friday morning, “Excited to announce that I have joined forces with @FeedingAmerica, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, to raise money for folks who need it most.”
Affleck added online: “We’ve already raised over $1 million, with 100% of proceeds benefiting Feeding America. Right now, their work is more critical than ever before so I hope you’ll be able to join us and watch along live.”
The event has already raised $1.2 million, and all the players will play from home.
Poker commentators Justin Kelly and Michael Loncar will host — and players will also include Jason Bateman, Bryan Cranston, Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Cheryl Hines, Doyle Brunson and other poker pros, sources said.
