Dick Van Pattens Celebrity Poker Tournament To Benefit Marines

Dick Van Patten, star of "Eight is Enough", will be joined by singer Connie Stevens in competing for $75,000 at Van Patten's No-Limit Texas Hold'em Celebrity poker tournament.

The event is scheduled to take place Nov. 10 to Nov. 12 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. The poker tournament is being held for the benefit of a holiday party for the children of service men and women who are stationed at the US Marine Corps base at Twentynine Palms. Van Patten is the brains behind the event, saying that he feels a special connection to the US Marines.

"My father was a Marine," he says. "I have soft place in my heart for Marines."

Van Patten will also be joined by his son, who is starring in an upcoming poker movie with Burt Reynolds.

Eileen Davidson, star of "The Young and the Restless", and Van Patten's wife, will also grace the event.

The tournament begins Friday, Nov. 10. A celebrity cocktail registration party and mixer will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. The first round of official tournament play takes place Nov. 11 with sessions from 9 a.m. to noon, 1 to 4 p.m., 4:30 to 7 p.m., and 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. The semi-finals are set to be held from 9 a.m. to noon and the finals from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 12.
