There’s absolutely no mistaking her familiar voice as Bart Simpson, and today, The Simpsons‘ Nancy Cartwright joined us to talk about her annual Happy House Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament now in its 7th year!
Nancy cordially invites the public to attend her poker fundraiser and family barbeque on May 19th right at her ‘house that Bart built’ to help raise money for charity!
Nancy has hosted her annual poker tournament for the past seven years at her very own house in Northridge to help raise money for charity programs like Good Choices and the Boys and Girls Club.
Not only is it a poker tournament (where you can rub elbows with a few celebrities), but it’s also a family barbeque complete with hot dogs, hamburgers, chili, live music and raffles!
“It’s such a blast,” says Nancy adding, “I’m the honorary mayor of the community and I’ve got a great relationship with the police department!”
Schmooze with big celebs while donating to a good cause and maybe earn a little extra pocket change for yourself! Listen to our complete two-part interview with Nancy below:
In part two of the interview, Nancy talks about her production company’s new FREE app on iTunes called Smoke Your Tires, which bring the race car experience to users.
