Power Duo Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Run Charity Poker Game in Vegas
During the Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend in Las Vegas, a unique event unfolded away from the racetrack. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck hosted an exclusive private poker event. This special gathering wasn't held in one of Las Vegas's renowned casinos but took place at LAVO, an Italian restaurant and nightclub known for its popularity and chic ambiance.
The event attracted a constellation of stars, turning the poker tables into a mini Hollywood gala. Notable attendees included John Hamm, famed for his role in "Mad Men," James Marsden from "Westworld," Tobey Maguire, best known as "Spider-Man," Cara Delevingne of "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets," renowned TV host Jimmy Kimmel, and a former American football star Colton Underwood.
The tournament, which included a game of poker and blackjack, focused on raising funds for humanitarian missions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Additionally, the event supported the Eastern Congo Initiative, a non-profit organization founded by Ben Affleck, dedicated to aiding this concrete region.
It was an exclusive event just for the invitees, with details about the amount raised for charity, the winners, and the standout players of the evening remaining undisclosed. It undoubtedly combined the thrill of poker with the spirit of philanthropy, marking a memorable night in Las Vegas.
