Ante Up for Africa on ESPN Tonight

Posted by Laura Heaton on August 11, 2009

The Ante Up for Africa celebrity poker tournament this summer drew a star-studded crowd of world-class poker players and aficionados to raise funds for Enough and Refugee International’s Sudan advocacy efforts. The 3rd annual Ante Up tournament in Las Vegas, hosted by poker star Annie Duke and actor Don Cheadle, raised $360,000 through donations from the tournament’s winners.

Tonight at 8p.m. EDT, ESPN will broadcast the Ante Up tournament as part of its coverage of the World Series of Poker. Click here to watch the event online or find your local ESPN provider.

The Enough Team created this highlights reel from the red carpet, featuring Ante Up hosts Annie Duke and Don Cheadle and poker aficionados Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Sarah Silverman, Jason Alexander, and Charles Barkley.
