LOS ANGELES, CA (June 18, 2019) – Los Angeles will heat up with the thrilling sounds of ping pong on the field of Dodger Stadium this August, when the Kershaw’s Challenge PingPong4Purpose celebrity tournament fundraiser makes it return on Thursday, August 8th. The beloved annual summer showdown marks its seventh year, hosted by Los Angeles Dodgers’ star pitcher Clayton Kershaw and his wife Ellen, who founded their non-profit organization Kershaw’s Challenge in 2011. Serving their passions for ping pong and supporting children’s educational and community charities, the Kershaws’ 7th Annual PingPong4Purpose features an all-star matchup of venerated athletes, entertainment celebrities, family, friends, sponsors and fans engaging in ping pong battles, poker, a silent auction, and other activities. Clayton and Ellen Kershaw will also honor multiple GRAMMY® and Academy of Country Music Award-winner Brad Paisley and his wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley with the Kershaw’s Challenge Impact Award at this year’s PingPong4Purpose, for the couple’s charitable work.
