Donnie Wahlberg Hosts Poker Tournament in Boston

Donnie hosted a poker tournament to benefit the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation. Here is a report by TV station WHDH in Boston:

TEWKSBURY, Mass. -- Boston celebrities gathered in Tewksbury Saturday for a charity poker tournament hosted by Donnie Wahlberg.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers and Boston Bruin Sean Thornton were among the celebs showing off their poker faces.

The poker tournament benefited the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation. Brothers Donnie and Jimmy Wahlberg played both hosts and reporter when they got a hold of the 7NEWS mic.

“It looks like we're going to have just enough money to cover camp this year, so that's amazing,” Jimmy Wahlberg told Donnie, who was playing the role of a 7NEWS reporter.

"Camp" is Camp Northbound in Maine, where 150 inner-city kids will get to spend one week this summer for free, thanks to the foundation.

The kids aren't the only winners; stars like Celtics' guard Carlos Arroya got to show off their skills off the court.

The event drew a full house.
