More Than Booby Prizes For Poker Players At Breast Benefit

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Breast cancer is hardly a sexy issue, but porn stars are trying to end the disease – by playing poker.

Tonight (June 22) is the inaugural “Babes & Aces Poker Tournament,” a porn-star-studded benefit to help raise money for a non-profit called b.a.b.e. – which stands for “breast awareness benefits everyone.”

It’s being held at L.A.’s ritzy Hollywood Park Casino, and b.a.b.e. founder Marcia Hrichison says each table will include a nudie flick chick or stud to play Texas Hold ’Em against for a top prize of $5000.

Adult film stars slated to play include Taylor Wane, Carmen Luvana, Katie Morgan, Joanna Angel and Seymore Butts.

Hrichison is a breast cancer survivor who founded b.a.b.e. two years ago, and she’s betting that mixing “porn and poker is a sure-fire way to get men involved in the cause, too.”

Strip poker, however, is a no-no at tonight’s event, Hrichison says: “It’s a legitimate casino, so it’s rated PG.”
