Additionally, there are exclusive packages for groups of four priced at $4,000, and for groups of ten priced at $10,000.

Ted Danson is No Stranger to Charity Poker Events

Of course, Ted Danson and Cheryl Hines, who both starred in Curb Your Enthusiasm, are well-known participants in charity tournaments. Recently, they were seen at the “All In for CP Charity Event” held at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas.

“I have a nephew who has Cerebral Palsy,” Hines told PokerNews at a previous charity event. “He’s been in a wheelchair since he was born, and I know what a challenge that is, not only for the individual but for all the loved ones that support them.”

Meanwhile, it seems like Ted Danson appearing in the new Frasier reboot isn’t in the cards. Star Kelsey Grammer put to rest any rumors of characters from Cheers returning anytime soon.

“I’m not sure the guys who wrote Cheers would want us to go back to Cheers,” Grammer recently told Deadline. “It’s like, let’s let that be where it is. It’s a monument in the minds of television history. But is it possible we might see someone from the old days at the bar? Maybe.”

However, Grammer didn’t rule a Cheers reunion out. You know, I love Ted [Danson] and working with him, so I’d love to do something with him. We just haven’t broken that idea yet,” he said.
