This weekend NCIS star Mark Harmon, and a group of his celebrity friends, will gather to raise money to support local non-profit organizations. The 13th annual event includes a bowling night and a celebrity baseball game. The event kicks off in Shawnee with the Stars & Strikes Bowling night at FireLake Bowling Center.
“This event is all about kids and raising money to provide opportunities for them,” said Chris Skillings, director, FireLake Bowling Center. “We’re happy to help support these organizations and provide a nice location for this fun event.”
Celebrities will bowl on a team against local sponsored teams. The event also includes a live and silent auction and live entertainment. Tickets to attend are available for $125 at FireLake Bowling Center.
The weekend continues with a baseball game at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. Mark Harmon and his celebrity team, the Bombers, will face off against the OSSO Outlaws. CPN employees Jason Greenwalt and Daniel LeClaire will be playing against Harmon.
“I’m looking forward to participating in such a fun event that is for a very worthy cause,” said Jason Greenwalt. “This will be my first time playing in the baseball game and I’m looking forward to representing CPN.”
Proceeds for this year’s events will benefit the Oklahoma City Indian Clinic, The Anna’s House Foundation and Big Brothers Big Sisters Shawnee office. The fundraising goal is $400,000.
