Andy Roddick serves up charity Hold'em event tonight

Tennis great Andy Roddick is rallying his celebrity friends to play poker for a good cause tonight in Hollywood, Fla.

Stars such as Paris and Nikki Hilton, Mandy Moore, Andre Agassi and Alex Rodriguez will circle the felt at the inaugural Andy Roddick Texas Hold'em Charity Tournament at the Hard Rock Seminole Casino.

All money raised is going to Roddick's personal foundation, which contributes money to organizations benefiting at-risk children and families as well as victims of abuse and neglect. Since its inception in 2001, the foundation has donated $1.3 million to charitable causes.

Buy-ins for the event were set at $1,000, but those who didn't get a seat can still catch some Texas Hold'em action by watching the feed from the Xbox Live Vision Cam situated in the VIP room.

Fans can also challenge Roddick to a hand between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET, as the tennis pro promotes the new Xbox 360 live game World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions. To play, visit the Xbox Live gamertag, AndyGWF.

The World Series of Poker: Tournament of Champions game puts players on the professional circuit as the virtual protégé of poker pro Chris "Jesus" Ferguson. Along the way, gamers will face some of the biggest names in the business, including WSOP winner Joe Hachem and actress-turned-poker-pro Jennifer Tilly.
