A Big Night At 9th Annual Stars & Strikes Event
March 13, 2015 at 12:01 PM (PT)
It was an unusually warm MARCH night in SOCAL, but things really heated up last night (3/12) at the 9th annual STARS & STRIKES CELEBRITY BOWLING AND POKER TOURNAMENT. The event raises funds for A PLACE CALLED HOME, described on their website as "a safe haven in SOUTH CENTRAL LOS ANGELES where underserved youth are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts, and well-being and are inspired to make a meaningful difference in their community and the world." It is held each year in collaboration with the music industry and iHEARTMEDIA's KIIS-FM.
Guests arrived via a red carpet-styled walkway. Inside, the rooms were decked out in style and there was lots of food and drink for all to enjoy. Entertainers mingled with the fans and had fun taking pictures, signing autographs, bowling, playing in a poker tournament all the while helping to raise money for the cause.
Among the guests in attendance, ISLAND/REPUBLIC's TOVE LO, CAPITOL RECORDS' EDEN XO, HOLLYWOOD RECORDS' R5 and BRIDGIT MENDLER, KEMOSABE/COLUMBIA's LUNCHMONEY LEWIS, 19/RAL's JORDIN SPARKS, YOUTUBE phenoms MEGAN NICOLE and TREVOR MORAN, indie artists ALINA ARTTS, MAYRA VERONICA, JESSI MALAY, WILD STYLE, the cast of the TV series JANE THE VIRGIN and the whole KIIS family!
