On June 15, 2024 the 12th Annual Ed Asner & Friends Celebrity Poker Tournament will take place in the very setting I just described.  A $275 donation secures your buy-in to play next to your favorite celebrity poker players.

Ed Asner’s legacy of goodwill is carried on by The Ed Asner Family Center, the charity this event will benefit. Asner was hailed as the most decorated actor in the history of the Primetime Emmy® awards but was also a humanitarian, which he passed on to his son Matthew Asner, who co-founded The Ed Asner Family Center with his wife, Navah Paskowitz Asner. The Centers mission is to be a one-stop shop for those with special needs and their families seeking wholeness in all attitudes of life. Catering not only to the individual but to the whole family, the Center acts as an oasis of balance and thought, interaction, and education. Additionally, the Center offers mental health services, arts programs and career advancement classes such as cooking, yoga, acting, improv, and more! These classes set out to help promote self-confidence and balance.
