The pins will be flying and the cards clicking when the 9th Annual Stars & Strikes Celebrity Bowling & Poker Tournament kicks off on Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at the PINZ Bowling Center in Studio City, CA. Proceeds from the star-studded event, which will end at 11 p.m., will support the important work of A Place Called Home (APCH), a safe haven of opportunity for under-served youth in South Los Angeles.

Tickets are on sale now for the all-ages high-energy benefit, which will feature 32 lanes of bowling action and a No-Limit All-In Texas Hold ’Em professional-level poker tournament. The latter has already attracted the participation of the Royal Flush Girls, noted professional female poker players.

The annual Stars & Strikes event raises funds and awareness for APCH, which supports inner-city youth and empowers them to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, the arts, nutrition and fitness, as well as through college preparation and college scholarships. Over the past eight years, Stars & Strikes has raised more than $1,000,000 for APCH’s free programs.

“This is such an exciting event, and the funds we raise will make a meaningful difference in the lives of hundreds of young people at A Place Called Home,” said Jonathan Zeichner, executive director, A Place Called Home. “Participants are always welcome to visit APCH, get involved as volunteers and, in other ways, become part of the APCH family.”

APCH expects a number of celebrities from the entertainment and sports worlds to attend and participate in Stars & Strikes this year. To date, these include several LA Galaxy players and Eden xo, singer-songwriter and dancer. More VIPs will be confirmed as the event draws closer. KIIS-FM is a major sponsor of Stars & Strikes.

Previous years’ celebrity ambassadors and supporters include: Cee-Lo Green, music artist/producer; Miley Cyrus, actor/music artist; Pete Wentz, music artist; Ryan Tedder, music artist, OneRepublic/producer; Coldplay, music artist; Mark Wahlberg, actor/musician; Jonah Hill, actor; Howie Mandel, actor; Penny Marshall, director; Nick Cannon, music artist/actor/TV host; Keke Palmer, actor; Jason Derulo, music artist; Ariana Grande, music artist; Austin Mahone, music artist; The Wanted, music artist; Red One, producer; Dr. Luke, producer; Cody Simpson, music artist; Verne Troyer, actor; Scott Disick, reality TV star; Matthew Lillard, actor; “That 70’s Show” star Wilmer Valderama; Benji and Joel Madden, music artists; and, many others.

Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas, + Olivia Culpo Bowl For Best Buddies In L.A. — See The Pics!

Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas, and Olivia Culpo put their huge hearts on display when they volunteered their time to an awesome event on Sunday afternoon (April 27) — the Audi Best Buddies’ Bowling For Buddies at Lucky Strike Lanes at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, CA!

Best Buddies — who are celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year — is a non-profit organized that is “dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD),” a cause that has always been near and dear to Joe’s heart.

Not only did the trio (plus Joe’s girlfriend Blanda Eggenschwiler and their friends John Taylor and Lola Kelly, who were also in attendance) have a blast bowling with their Best Buddies, but they also signed the R-Word campaign pledge to eliminate the use of the word “retarded” in a negative way.

If want to learn more about Best Buddies, you can check out their website for more information on how you can make a difference like these three did today! You can also join Joe, Nick, and Olivia in taking the R-Word pledge on the campaign’s official site here.
