Celebrity Poker. Cancer Free Generation Celebrity Poker Tournament and Game Night on Saturday September 7, 2019 at Sofitel Hotel

On Saturday evening September 7, 2019 the Riviera 31, at the Sofitel Hotel, 8555 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles was crowded with celebrities including stars from Dancing with the Stars, Happy Days, Grey's Anatomy, Truth Be Told, Twilight, General Hospital, Ballers, X Factor, Poker Pros.

Sports notables and many more participated in the Poker Tournament Games to help beat cancer at the 6th Annual Tower Cancer Research Foundation Cancer Free Generation Celebrity Poker Tournament

I was fortunate to be able to chat with Ben Savage, (Cory Matthews on hit TV sitcom Boy Meets World and spin off series Girl Meets World on Disney Channel) who is a big contributor to the CFG

I was impressed by my conversation with the beautiful and charismatic Suzanne Asherson, Vice President of Cancer Free Generation (CFG), who is a breast cancer survivor, supporter and advocate.

This fun filled poker tournament honored Casey Federman, the Founding President of CFG, which is the young leadership division of the Tower Cancer Research Foundation. The CFG is supportive of medical cancer research, clinical trials, innovative doctors and medical professionals to facilitate new cancer treatment and procedures to conquer cancer

All guests enjoyed the lavish appetizers, a gourmet sushi buffet, hosted bar, desert trays of assorted donuts, candy and a huge crème filled chocolate cake. There was a silent auction, raffle prizes and the opportunity to play an exciting game of poker.

Everyone seemed happy and convivial to be contributing their time and money to make the next generation a truly cancer free generation!
