Los Angeles, CA (August 24, 2013)—More than 300 celebrities, voice over stars and party guests made up a full house at the Screen Actors Guild Foundation’s 3rd Annual Poker Classic at an exclusive location at the Original Farmer’s Market. The SAG Foundation Poker Classic is the major annual fundraiser for the SAG Foundation’s Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab dedicated to the professional development and success of voice over artists.

"No other facility exists for voice over artists like the SAG Foundation’s Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab,” said SAG Foundation President JoBeth Williams. “We are proud our Poker Classic fundraiser sold out in its third year so that the Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab can continue to support the voice over community."
“Tonight there will be no one saying ‘Here’s NBC’ or ‘On ABC…’ or ‘Here’s the Emmys coming up’ because we’ve got them all playing poker to benefit this great facility,” said actor Jeff Perry of Scandal.
The SAG Foundation’s Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab, a state-of-the-art voice over facility, offers free workshops, seminars and demonstrations that are led by industry experts every week for voice over artists. The fully-equipped sound studio also allows voice over artists to work on their craft, make demo reels and record auditions all at no cost.
