Full House

| May 23, 2013 | Parties National

THE PARTY Bulgari tapped actress and Geffen Playhouse board member Adi Greenberg to host a night of friendly parlor games at her Santa Monica home with more than 50 of the city’s most influential Hollywood women. The evening of full houses and wild cards benefited The Geffen Playhouse and Determined to Succeed, an educational program that aims to help low-income, at-risk students excel in school and get into college. THE PLAYERS Regina Miller, Annie Duke, Amy Arenson, Molly Morgan, Abby Adams, Janice Crystal, Helen Kinnear, Jenny Belushi, Martha Henderson, Pam Soller, Sarah Southern, Ophelia Weiss, Patty Winograd THE HIGHLIGHTS Poker pro Duke, known for guiding Ben Affleck to his 2004 California State Poker Championship win, gave guests a quick lesson before the first cards were dealt. She likened poker to punishing a child, saying, “It’s always easier when you threaten them with a smaller amount because they know there is more to come [like in a bet].” Bulgari stirred things up by announcing that the last three players would go home with a bauble from its Serpenti collection. Now that’s upping the ante. Photography by Jordan Strauss/ Invision
