Wiliam Shatner Participates in Celebrity Paintball
by Tolena Mahlum
On Sunday Last Year
For the past 13 years, William Shatner has spearheaded the Hollywood Charity Horse Show which features some of the best western reining riders in the country while raising money for charity. As we all know, Shatner is also involved with paintball events that raise money for charities as well. Labor Day weekend this year will mark the third year that Shatner will participate in Celebrity Paintball - formerly known as William Shatner's SPPLAT Attack.
This particular charity fundraising event is for the Ahead With Horses organization which works with severely handicapped children.
"Most [of the children] cannot walk, some are blind, and some have little chance of survival," says the Ahead With Horses organization. The AWH staff uses equine-therapy to help the children learn how to adjust their difficult lives and learn how to be more mobile.
The event is going on September 4 and 5. On Friday, Sept. 3, camper setup and pre-registration will take place. Saturday will be open games and registration, and the trade show will be open as well. Sunday will include opening smack talk, an all-day celebrity scenario called "Mobster Mash" and at the end of the day there will be an auction and prize giveaways.
If you register early to participate in Celebrity Paintball, you will have the opportunity to win the new AGD scenario marker, the Tac-One. All you have to do is register for the event and pay your money. A name will be pulled out of a hat each month until the actual event, and if it happens to be yours - you win! You must be 18 or older with a valid email address and fully paid registration for the event.
If you would like to donate some money to the Ahead With Horses organization, visit 68Caliber.com who has set up a donation button for the organization. 68Caliber has also pledged that they will match the donations dollar-for-dollar up to $1,500.
"It is our goal to reach the $1,500 mark," said Bryan Gilchrist, CEO of 68Caliber.com. "We would be delighted to hand Mr. Shatner a check, with our matched funds, for $3,000 at this years Celebrity Paintball event, but we would be even more delighted to be able to hand him a check for an even greater amount."
