World renowned professional poker player, author, and star of the second season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” Annie Duke, and her father, writer and broadcaster, Richard Lederer, hosted the first charity poker tournament to benefit the animals and programs of the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA this past January 2012. Called “Paws for Poker,” the event was a no-limit Texas hold-em charity poker tournament held at Harrah’s Rincon Resort.  Upward of $17,000.00 was raised during the poker tournament.

“The San Diego Humane Society is an amazing organization,” said Annie Duke.  “They not only provide outstanding care for the animals, but they are also actively involved in the community to promote the humane treatment of animals.  Poker players love their animals so it was a no-brainer that the San Diego Humane Society would be an organization that they would want to support.”
