Cheryl Hines, Jennifer Tilly, Mekhi Phifer, Shannon Elizabeth, Sean Astin, Sam Simon and other stars went to the Venetian on Saturday to put their support behind a poker tourney for the One Step Closer Foundation, a cerebral palsy charity led by Jacob Zalewski, who has cerebral palsy and who has an amazing ability to convince stars to do charity events.
Players bought silent-auction items. Someone paid $5,000 to sit between the Playboy Playmates Stacy Fuson and Lauren Anderson. (Courtesy photos by Jacob Andrzejczak – IS Photography/Images of Vegas.)
