Actress, model, philanthropist, and international celebrity Pamela Anderson has conquered just about everything she has set her mind to. Since her breakout role in Baywatch, she has achieved an iconic status that few ever reach. Her latest endeavor is both fun to play and cause worthy; a new virtual Facebook app called BamPoker. Founders Elton Pereira and Jeremy Nichele wanted to introduce an interactive gaming experience that is both casual and fun to play. The Facebook App allows the online community to duel it out in Texas Hold 'em, with no money involved, using online virtual chips. Best of all, players will also have the chance to play or chat with Pamela herself! BamPoker has partnered with non-profit Free the Children and playing the game will help support the organization. Pamela chats with Joonbug about how she got involved in this online gaming experience, her upcoming return to Dancing with the Stars: All Stars, and her philanthropic background.
The Sapphire Foundation and Peter Feinster, the foundation's creator, will be hosting a charity poker and golf tournament at Sapphire New York and the New York Country Club, respectively, to raise money for prostate cancer.

The poker tournament will take place Sunday, September 11th, and the golf tournament will take place the following day, Monday the 12th. The fundraiser first launched in Las Vegas, and after tremendous success out West, they've decided to come to the Big Apple to continue raising money for the second leading cause of cancer for males in the U.S.
