Celebrities and poker stars come together to raise money for charity (pics)

Stars from the small screen to the silver screen competed against professional poker's best at the H.O.M.E. foundation’s Celebrity Casino Royale poker tournament. And to be quite honest the celebrities did quite well.

Professional poker player Annie Duke was a fan favorite but the WSOP winner failed to make it to the final table thanks to “American Pie” star Shannon Elizabeth and “Off the Map” actor Nicholas Gonzalez.

But the true stars of the show were the two charities that benefited from the event, SPCALA and the I’m Too Young For This Cancer Foundation—well and of course Corey Feldman.

According to H.O.M.E., the Celebrity Casino Royale poker tournament was a success and the foundation is now well “on its way” to reaching its $200,000 fundraising goal for the two non-profits.

Congrats on a successful event!
