Actor Hank Azaria has teamed up with PokerStars for the second edition of Hank’s Home Game, which seeks to raise money for an array of worthy causes.
Azaria will be joined at the online poker table by famous faces Amy Schumer, Jack Black, JK Simmons and Jason Alexander, along with Jon Hamm who returns for his chosen charity after falling short in the debut game.
The contest, powered by PokerStars.net, sees the six celebrities compete on camera to win their share of a $50,000 donation to the charities closest to their hearts.
“I’m excited to be back for another game and more entertainment for everyone to enjoy while we raise more funds for charity,” Azaria stated. “Connecting with these guys for good has been a blast. You just never know what’s going to happen, and I don’t even mean just with the poker.”
For this series of home games, PokerStars.net has partnered with the Edward Charles Foundation – a public charity umbrella of over 100 charitable initiatives – to distribute funds raised through Hank’s Home Game.
Kent Seton, CEO and Chairman of Edward Charles Foundation, remarked: “The Edward Charles Foundation team is beyond excited to be working with the world class platform, PokerStars.net who have stepped up to do good and change the world and the Edward Charles Foundation team is specifically excited to be working with the Hank’s Home Game initiative which will help raise charitable funds and change countless lives.”
In the first edition of Hank’s Home Game, Don Cheadle, Jon Hamm, Michael Ian Black, Josh Charles and Michael Cera went head-to-head with Hank, with Cera taking the the top spot and a $20,000 donation to his charity of choice, First Responders First, who support the health and safety needs of public healthcare workers.
