Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 28, 2015
Gratwick Films, Javelina 98 Productions and Aces & Angels are proud to announce the trio will co-host a Celebrity Poker Shoot-out at The Belasco Theater to raise funds for Big Brother Big Sister of Greater Los Angeles and a national charity voted on by the online audience. The event is expected to draw dozens of celebrities and professional poker players to hit the gaming tables to raise public awareness and funds for the charities, prior to Gratwick’s crowdfunding project.
The fun-filled, interactive fundraiser will also provide an unforgettable evening of charitable casino gaming, premium cocktails, and delicious cuisine. The poker tournament will feature a Shootout style format with celebrities and professional poker players joining each table to play with guests for a Grand Prize entry ticket into the main event of this year’s World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Starting with the red carpet arrivals at noon, the entire event will be streamed live on Youtube at http://youtube.com/JustDriveTheMovie as part of a one of a kind kick-off to a crowd fund campaign to make the film Just Drive and use it as a vehicle to support children’s charities.
The ten-hour web-a-thon will feature live entertainment, comedians, celebrity pop-ins and online guests, even members of the audience, from around the world. Backers of the campaign will have the opportunity to vote on the charity the campaign and film will benefit as well as issue event bounties for guests to complete to increase their chances of winning prizes. For guests not participating in the poker tournament there will be innovative entertainment to go with games of nostalgia for a chance to win a grand prize vacation package to Catalina Island and many other prizes.
“Gratwick Films strives to find ways to benefit charitable causes with our work. Our unique crowd-fund campaign allows us to provide free entertainment and a positive social impact before we asked the crowd to support our plan to be the change we want to see in this world,” Stated Kris Hulbert, of Gratwick Films.
