(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Non-profit advocacy organization b.a.b.e. (breast awareness benefits everyone) will be holding their second annual Babes & Aces® Charity Celebrity Poker Tournament on Thursday, June 21st at Hollywood Park Casino in Los Angeles, California.
Over 25 adult stars will join various celebrities from television, movies and music for a night complete with a full house of fans to help raise funds in the ongoing fight to keep breasts healthy. In addition to a Texas Hold 'Em No-Limit Poker Tournament, with a $5,000 grand prize, there will also be Babes & Aces poker and blackjack tables (play for prizes), an auction, and buffet. Stars scheduled to play and appear include Tera Patrick, Stormy Daniels, Jenna Haze, Gina Lynn, Sunny Lane, b.a.b.e. spokeswoman Taylor Wane, and many more. There's a modest $250 buy-in for tournament, and $100 admission for those who just want to come to party and play for prizes.
"Babes & Aces is a very powerful combination, and when you add the support of AVN, Erotica LA, and the F.A.M.E. Awards, the power grows exponentially," said Marcia Hrichison, Executive Director of b.a.b.e. "The 2nd Annual Tournament will be at least twice as effective in raising funds and awareness. It was a great party last year, and for 2007 we're ready to double down!"
"AVN and Erotica LA are excited to be an integral part of the Babes & Aces Poker Tournament," said Paul Fishbein, President of AVN. Last year was a great start, and for 2007 we are doubling our efforts, and hope to inspire others to do the same. I'm proud that some of the proceeds will benefit the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund in Philadelphia, which is the breast cancer fund I am closely associated with. The industry has always been very supportive of this cause, as they know how this insidious disease has touched my friends and family. Babes & Aces is perfect kick-off to the Erotica LA weekend." the first 100 players to purchase $250 Texas Hold 'Em entries will receive a pair of free VIP tickets to Erotica LA ($150 value).
In addition to supporting the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund, at Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, donations will also be made to other organizations such as the Wellness Centers; Westside Family Health Center, Los Angeles; nationwide 'Check Em, Don't Neglect Em® Campaign.
We don't ignore the issue of breasts as sex objects; we embrace it. We harness the power and the allure of the breast to draw support from previously untapped sources. b.a.b.e. Is the only organization working to create a team of non-traditional supporters in the fight against breast cancer, a disease that will affect one in every eight women. b.a.b.e. Is committed to funding breast cancer research and educational programs, especially in the areas of early detection an d prevention. It's all to keep breasts bouncing!
