Once again, over five hundred guests swarmed Nancy Cartwright’s Northridge “house that Bart built” decked out in Denim and Diamonds for the 5th annual Monte Carlo Night here in Southern California last Saturday.
This year, Cartwright Entertainment added the Boys and Girls Club of the West Valley as an additional beneficiary. The last four years fundraising efforts helped to raise money for the building of the Councilman Greig Smith LAPD Devonshire PALS Youth Center. Devonshire PALS (Police Activities League Supporters) were again beneficiary to support many of the programs at the Center which helps to keep kids away from gangs and drugs.
Hundreds of fans and stars played No Limit Texas Hold ‘Em with Nancy, her celebrity friends, and poker pros. Those who supported the event included Kirstie Alley, Camryn Manheim, Brad Garrett, Jose Conseco, Patrick Cassidy, Michelle Stafford, Bill Smitrovich, Bryan Cranston, Lou Diamond Phillips, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Kristin Cruz, Lisa Stanley, and many, many more. Co-hosting the Poker Tournament were poker pros Jerry Yang (WSOP Main Event Winner) and Mary Jones (WSOP Ladies Event Winner).
In addition to the tournament, there were casino games, dinner catered by The Kitchen, which was some outstanding food, open bars, a cigar lounge, great entertainment with Nathan Osmond, Dee Dee O’Malley and other guest performances, line dancing lessons with the sexy Palmer Davis and dancing to the music of the rocking Saint Tones. Nancy Cartwright herself did a live performance that wowed the VIP crowd.
For all of her outstanding work in helping children and the community, Nancy Cartwright was here given this night a special award of recognition by the mayor of Los Angeles’ office.
A behind the scenes report of the event with many exclusive photos of the stars will be brought to readers in a special entertainment news issue of The Hollywood Sentinel and here via News Blaze this Friday night.
