There’s a place in Hollywood hearts for autism, and this a movement we hope will take flight!
Aisha Tyler and Caroline Rhea are teaming up in a celebrity poker tournament and concert in Las Vegas this Saturday, November 14th, to raise funds to provide medical care and services for children with Autism and other disabilities.
Aisha Tyler is a comedian, actress, and author, and is well-known as being the voice of Lana Kane in the popular FX cartoon, Archer. Caroline Rhea hosted The Biggest Loser on NBC, and is also well-known for her role as Hilda Spellman, the aunt of Sabrina on ABC’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Both women are notable philanthropists, and have put an extraordinary amount of work into recruiting other celebrities to take part in the event.
Celebrities participating in the event include: Bob Saget, Jason Alexander, Stephen Bishop, Kathy Najimy, Patrick Warburton, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Joshua Malina, Cheryl Hines, and Kevin Pollak.
