Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn, two movie stars who probably don't need any introduction, are two of the hosts for the upcoming Four Kings and an Ace charity poker tournament organised by the World Poker Tour Foundation, which raises money for Mending Kids charity that helps providing surgery and medical care to children in 57 countries around the world.
The event will take take place at CITIZEN Beverly Hills (a popular restaurant) on October 21st and it will include a charity poker tournament, casino games and a live and silent auction. An entrance ticket costs $500 and those who want to play the poker tourney will have to fork out another $5,000. The poker tournament will include poker stars such as WPT Ambassador and Poker Hall of Fame member Mike Sexton, WPT Champions Club members Erik Seidel and Scotty Nguyen.
The WPT Foundation has raised more than $6 million for charities so far, and hopefully a lot of money will be raised at the upcoming event!

| The WPT Foundation has raised more than $6 million for charities of all different shapes and sizes, which helped provide life-saving surgical care for children in need around the world. It sure is a moral, motivational and inspirational story. |

This tournament is going to draw some attention, no doubt about that.
I hope they can raise a big amount for the kids.

| charity is just an excuse for those rich dudes to get away and do some gambling with their wives endorsements. they go like this: hey honey, tomorrow i will play some poker for a charitable cause, it's just a way to do some good for humanity... much better than: tomorrow i go to play some poker and drink vodka with some random dudes and hot ladies with no undies...|

How about next time they dont announce that they are helping. Instead they will just simply help. No tv, no media, no fuzz... If only they could do something so selfless.
