Have you ever seen a full boat get sucked out? Or would you like to see a top pair come through the back door? Well, you can see that and more from your favorite celebrities … and no, it’s not one of those Internet videos, either. On Thursday, the Celebrity Derby Poker party will be held at the Louisville Palace, where you can come see all of the above and more. The charity event, hosted by Denny Crum, Phil Hellmuth Jr. and Robert Williamson III, benefits both Blessings in a Backpack and The Health and Climate Foundation — which feed public school children on weekends and educate third-world countries on climate change, respectively. Poker professionals like Chris “Jesus” Ferguson and Beth Shak, celebrities like comedian Ron White and author Nora Roberts, and athletes like Paul Hornung and Corey Lanerie will be in attendance. —Brent Owen
