Bryan Cranston is hosting a celebrity poker tournament to help people in the entertainment industry who have stopped working!
The Entertainment Community Fund has distributed over $10M to 4,600 film and TV workers and has raised more than $18.7M from 12,200 donors.
The fund aims to help people from entertainment businesses with their health, career, and housing.
“What you see on screen goes beyond the faces in the frame. Hollywood could not produce one TV show or movie without the artisans behind the scenes. This poker tournament is about supporting the incredible people my friends and I are so lucky to work with every day, just as the Entertainment Community Fund has been doing for more than 140 years.”
“Now, in this time of need, we band together and do what we can to support one another,” said Cranston.
The players in this tournament will be a mix of poker players and Hollywood performers like Jason Alexandre from Seinfeld, Anette Bening, Andy Garcia, and others.
The start of the tournament is 12.11. at 22:00 CEST
