$10,000 is being donated to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS' COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund after Tony Yazbeck won his table at a celebrity poker event.

The event, called Stars Call For Action, was held today on PokerStars.

Organised by PokerStars, the Stars Call For Action (SFCA) charity poker tournament was organized by Hank Azaria, and included stars such as David Schwimmer, Amy Schumer, Michael Cera, Hank Azaria, Eric Bogosian and Andy Bellin.

Through the event, $1 million was donated to charity. $500,000 went directly to CARE International, PokerStars' chosen humanitarian relief fund. Viewer donations also went to CARE.

The other half of the prize pool was battled for in the tournament, and each winning player was able to donate their winnings to a charity of their choice.
