Madonna and Grant to play poker for Shane Warne’s charity
In an effort to raise money for charity, Australian cricketer Shane Warne is reportedly planning to get pop queen Madonna, Hollywood actor Hugh Grant and Trudie Styler, the wife of singer Sting together for a poker gambling event.
Other guests, who would be helping to raise around 300,000 pounds, include footballer Teddy Sheringham and Tom Parker Bowles, son of the Prince of Wales’ wife Camilla Parker.
Along with Warne, environmentalist Zac Goldsmith, editor of the Ecologist magazine will organize the fundraiser.
Money raised from the poker event will be donated to the Shane Warne Foundation, which works for children in need, and another organization that distributes funds to environmental charities.
Warne, writing in his Internet blog, said: “Madonna and Hugh Grant are playing and we are raising around 300,000 British quid for my foundation and Zac’s Ecology Trust,” reports the Sun.
