So last weekend I hit the red carpet for the City Gala’s Celebrity Poker Tournament where they celebrated the end of the weekend’s Wealth and Mastery Mindset summit and Golden Globes evening. Over 250 people attended the event including celebrities, poker professionals, and business leaders to play in the tournament and show their support for City Gala.
What’s the City Gala you ask…?
The City Gala’s vision is to advance community through humanitarian activities and events. Their mission is to assist startup, charitable organizations in launching their programs, gaining public awareness, and raising funds for their non-profit.
It’s always a great time supporting fun times especially for a good cause. I was able to interview Rocky Carroll (NCIS), Sheldon Bailey (Game Shakers), Bubba Ganter (Game Shakers), Kevontay Jackson (Everybody Hates Chris), Tatum Will (VH1: Investigation Discovery) and Spencer Garrett (Unsolved).
As a reminder, this event was the pre-cursor to March’s City Gala & Summit event held the weekend of the Academy Awards with the gala on Oscars evening. This event will be hosted by Ashton Kutcher. Tickets can be purchased here: https://www.citygala.org/
