3rd Annual Pre-Oscar Hollywood Domino Gala to benefit APJ
The highly anticipated Dominoes Tournament of the Academy Awards will take place on Thursday, March 4th, 2010 at bar210 in Beverly Hills. An exclusive group of Hollywood’s iconic personalities will come together for a fierce competition against one another in a nail biting dominoes tournament. Invited players include: Penelope Cruz, Charlize Theron, Molly Simms, Rosario Dawson, Camilla Belle, Garcelle Nilon, and James Franco to mention a few.
This black-tie event will not only act as an occasion to enjoy cocktails and tasty bites by Executive Chef Marcel Vigneron, but 100% of the funds raised will be directed to improving the lives of the children living in the slums of Haiti. The evening will be hosted by Paul and Deborah Haggis, Daya Fernandez, and Inge Theron, and guests have the opportunity to participate in the tournament during the Gala. Previous winners include: Ashton Kutcher, Salma Hayek and Charlize Theron and the current title holder is David Furnish.
The object of the game is very simple: two tables of 8 players comprised of past winners will fight for the title. After eliminations, those who finish all their dominoes will win!
Proceeds from the evening will be directed to the charitable organization Artists for Peace & Justice (APJ). Established in early 2009, APJ is a fundraising effort founded by Paul Haggis and friends that encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty and enfranchisement in communities around the world. The organization’s immediate goal is to build schools to serve the poorest areas of Haiti, providing an education, hot meals, clean drinking water and regular medical treatments to the children living in the slums.
