Saturday nights alright at Nancy Cartwrights

Despite all my other Saturday night options made it very easy for me to (re)visit the fifth Nancy Cartwright Monte Carlo evening in the beautiful grounds of her Northridge home.Matt Waldron would have a cow in this place but I was just too busy waiting for the dessert bar to open to bother anyone famous!

TBH the structure of the poker tournament would give Allen Kessler a heart attack and needs attention.As we entered the final hour and every hand was all in or fold only Kenna James and Chris Ferguson survived from the pros that included Howard Lederer,Annie Duke, Jerry Yang,Jamie GoldBarbara Enright,Michelle Lau and Scott Diamond.

The prizes included jewelry donated by Suzie Lederer’s “Lord Griffon” company.

The hot and sticky afternoon turned into a perfect evening to be outdoors.Max Shapiro provided my favourite quote of the evening. When I asked about his table companions he replied ” The opposition I can handle…if I could see my cards”

Poker aside, the food was delicious, Tom Kenny was a great MC for the auction and Nathan Osmond the nephew of Donny + Marie gave a polished performance on the stage.Nancy was her usual energentic self.She doesn’t gamble but she seems to love the company and regularly hosts fundraisers in her grounds.

The sexiest agency in America Jo Ann Griffin made sure the media could not forget about this event with frequent emailed updates. Once again Micky Dolenz was a no show.Who doesn’t love the Monkees?

All money raised will benefit local children charities: LAPD Devonshire Pals and Boys and Girls Club of the West Valley.

Now I need to find something to do next Saturday.Congrats to Zenyatta, I love you!
