Ben Affleck’s got a busy week ahead of him! The actor is going to be in Denver this week for the Democratic National Convention, where he’s got quite the list of official duties to perform.

Tuesday night, he’ll be anteing up with professional poker players Andy Bloch and Barry Greenstein for Poker at the Ballpark. It’s, of course, a charity poker event, with the proceeds benefiting The Paralyzed Veterans of America. The grand prize winner of the tournament will also be rather handsomely rewarded, with a seat at the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event up for the taking.

Then on Wednesday, he’ll be boxing up produce for America’s Second Harvest with Colorado’s First Lady Jeannie Ritter and Michelle Obama.

He’ll be wrapping up the week with performances from Chris Moore’s The People Speak at an ideas forum called “The History of Progressive America”.

Sounds like quite the jam-packed itinerary, but Colorado’s First Lady thinks this is all a good thing. Regarding Ben Affleck’s celebrity status, she’s told People, “right or wrong, it gives us our traction”. I think that’s a pretty accurate observation. Fame can be a bad thing, for sure, but when it’s used in the right way – to bring attention to the green movement, charitable causes, and so on – it can most definitely benefit everyone involved.
