Lauren Alaina, Jake Owen Added To 26th Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game
Even more stars are lining up to strike out cancer at the upcoming 26th annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game, presented by Staples.
As the game’s official Social Media Ambassador, Sounds Like Nashville can exclusively confirm that Lauren Alaina, Danielle Bradbery, The Bobby Bones Show, Jessie James Decker, Mickey Guyton, Jonathan Jackson, LOCASH, Tristan McIntosh, Jake Owen, and former Major League Baseball pitcher Barry Zito have joined the already star-studded lineup for the June 7th game.
The Grand Ole Opry and iHeartCountry teams will face off June 7 at 3pm at First Tennessee Park in Nashville, Tennessee. Tickets for the fan favorite event are available now HERE.
A highlight of the 2016 game will be when Aaron Yniquez, an 8-year-old City of Hope patient from Redlands, California, will finally have the chance to meet his donor, Yolanda Nava, a Southwest Airlines® employee from Arlington, Texas. During his treatments for acute myeloid leukemia, Yniquez received a donation of genetically matched stem cells from Nava. The donation saved his life.
Also at this year’s game, music industry veteran Bruce Hinton will be honored as the founder of the longstanding event.
