David Arquette, Zac Efron and LiL’ Romeo headline poker event to benefit SPCALA

Imagine having the opportunity to play poker with celebrities like Zac Efron, David Arquette, LiL' Romeo and the number one female poker player in the world, Annie Duke, and raise money for the Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (SPCALA). Thanks to the H.O.M.E. (Helping Others Means Everything) foundation you can stop imagining and start anteing up.

The not-for-profit organization will be hosting a Celebrity Casino Royale event at the Avalon in Hollywood May 24 where guests, for a price, can test their poker skills against some of their favorite stars.

Money raised during the event will benefit the SPCALA along with another very worthy cause the I’m Too Young For This Cancer Foundation.

At last check the Poker Tournament has 37 of the 160 total seats still available while the Roulette and Black Jack tables only have 62 of the 515 Buy-Ins open. Open slots are going fast so you might want to check that bank account for the necessary funds to join the games, $950 ($1275 at the door) for the Poker Tournament and $575 ($700 at the door) if Black Jack and Roulette are more your speed.

If the pot wasn’t sweet enough for you already, prizes such as an original Steve Soffa Watch, a Buy-In to the World Series of Poker and a $13K European Vacation are up for grabs for those participating in the Poker Tournament. A $5k gift certificate to the Four Seasons will be the top prize at the tables.

Oh and did I mention that one of the celebrities on hand will be none other than Mr. Corey Feldman.

Yeah this will be the event of the year.
