Mel Gibson is gambling for good. He’s hosting a celebrity poker tournament with Martin Sheen that will raise money for Mending Kids, a charity that enables needy children to get surgical care.

The Texas Hold ‘Em tournament has just 28 openings, each with a buy-in price of $2,500. It takes place on Dec. 16.

Gibson has been a longtime supporter of Mending Kids; in fact, it’s the charity that benefited from the actor’s court-ordered community service. Earlier this year, Gibson headed to Guatemala to visit sick children and help the nonprofit out.

Do you think the celebrity poker tournament will help Gibson’s image in the public eye, or has he irreparably discredited his name?
