Poker and Playmates for a Good Cause

by Jeff Shulman |  Published: Apr 09, 2008


Card Player is heading back to the Playboy Mansion this year on May 17 as a main sponsor of the Urban Health Institute's (UHI) third-annual Vegas at the Playboy Mansion soiree. The event, which takes place on the grounds of one of the most famous private residences in the world, features a ton of poker, a ton of Playboy playmates, and (I guarantee) a ton of fun.

Everyone is invited to join the Card Player team, along with a slew of Hollywood celebrities and sports stars, at the famous Beverly Hills landmark. All of the money raised from this charity event will benefit the UHI, a nonprofit organization that provides direct care, medicine, and medical equipment in response to natural and man-made disasters.

You can get your foot in the door for $500 and explore Hugh Hefner's gardens and exotic zoo, and even take a dip in the infamous grotto. You'll be able to get a behind-the-scenes look at the Playboy Mansion, as tours will be available with Hef's Ambassador Playmates. And, for $1,500, you can participate in the Celebrity Poker Tournament, which has more than $50,000 in prizes, including a World Series of Poker main-event seat and a vacation package to Bermuda. Guests also will have a chance to try their luck at a host of other casino games, including roulette, craps, and blackjack.

Like last year, Card Player will be on hand to catch all of the festivities and shenanigans before, during, and after the charity poker tournament. It was a great time last year, and we hope that you can join us for the fun. To register for the tournament, or for more information, please go to
