Jason Alexander Annual Celebrity Poker Tournament


Not Jason, our eponymous host. But Chasin’ Jason Gallagher, our 2023 Champion pictured above and below. With his new trophy and title, JG is now almost as famous as his poker-playing brother-in-law, actor, Tom Everett Scott, who finished just a few tables short of the spotlight. Final hand was Pocket Rockets for the Champ and A-J for runner-up Jake Pressman.

With a field of over 250, it was a FULL HOUSE on Sunday, March 26 for Jason Alexander’s 21st Annual Celebrity Poker Tournament, held for the first time at Woodland Hills Country Club. It was also the first time a father-son combo (Jake and Jeff Pressman) earned seats at the Final Table.

On behalf of WeSPARK, we want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the tournament. A special thank you to Warner Bros. Discovery for sponsoring the Jason Alexander Winner’s Table. We are so grateful for all of our Sponsors (see listing below), Celebrity & Event Committee, Players, Raffle Supporters and Volunteers. Together, we raised $140,000!
