Kevin Hart Does His Bit for COVID-19 Charity Auction
19 Apr

Poker-loving comedy actor Kevin Hart is among a long list of celebrities offering up unique prizes in the ALL IN for COVID-19 Relief charity auction, joining Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, Justin Bieber and others in the fundraiser.

Jumanjii star Hart was announced just last week as a new ambassador for partypoker and one lucky fan will land once-in-a-lifetime experience with a speaking part in his next movie.

With entries to the random prize draw starting at just $10 for 10 tickets, Hart promises you’ll also get:

“The full A-lister treatment – movie-star trailer, personal assistant, your own car service, wardrobe and a complimentary stay in a five-star hotel.”

So far there are no poker experiences among the 40 or so amazing opportunities to participate in the All In Challenge, but if Hart’s chosen winner takes a deck of cards that should do the trick given the comedian’s love of the game.

Some of the other celebrities raising funds for the Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen and No Kid Hungry campaigns are also known to indulge in a bit of poker.

Leonardo DiCaprio was one of the Molly’s Game regulars in the Hollywood underground poker scene.

Fans of the Titanic star can look forward to joining him and Robert DeNiro in Killers of the Flower Moon directed by Martin Scorcese, a walk-on role, lunch with the famous trio and an invite to the film’s premiere thrown in.

Rapper Meek Mill, who you may remember from these pages last year when he described a Las Vegas casino as “Racist as hell” when he was denied entry to The Cosmopolitan, has put up his 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom for sale, the bidding already at $300,000 having started at $200,000.

If you missed it, Americas CardRoom did their bit for coronavirus charity relief by hosting an all-star poker tournament of their own last week, Ebony Kenney coming out on top ahead of the likes of Tobey Maguire, Ben Affleck, Doyle Brunson and Mike Matusow.

The celebrity tournament raised more than $1million for Feeding America, with ACR topping up the total with another $1million.
