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.

Favorite Universal characters, including Curious George and Woody and Winnie Woodpecker, will join the celebration dressed in traditional Chinese attire to meet guests and take memorable photos in front of a customary Chinese gong.  Asian-inspired treats along with traditional music, resonating throughout the Plaza, will help in commemorating the festive Lunar New Year.

Year-round, Universal Studios Hollywood’s signature Studio Tour offers guests a revealing look at an authentic movie and television studio in select languages, including Mandarin.  Expertly-trained Mandarin-speaking guides provide insight on the world of movie-making magic as guests enjoy a front row seat and behind-the-scenes access to one of the largest film studios in the world.  The theme park also features Mandarin-speaking associates within select theme park’s retail stores and provides in-language park maps.
