Ryan Potter Teams Up with Kyle Weiss & Other Stars for ‘Chance to Play 2012′

July 19, 2012


Ryan Potter from “Supah Ninjas” has enlisted some fellow Nickelodeon stars for a game of soccer and all for a great cause.

The group will come together on Crowell Field at University of Southern California on Sunday, August 5 for Chance to Play 2012. The event was created by Kyle Weiss, the founder of FUNDaFIELD, and Ryan Potter, the founder of Toy Box of Hope and star of Nickelodeon’s “Supah Ninjas.” The two felt there was a natural fit with the two organizations’ mission to bring hope to disadvantaged children. They wanted to create an annual event that no one had done before, one that would be fun and engaging for both audience and the young celebrities in attendance. And above all, an event that would be a platform for their messages and raise funds for both charities.

Hosts Stephen Kramer Glickman of Big Time Rush, and Kirk Fox of How to Rock, will host the day’s festivities in addition to coaching teams of young talent from many of today’s most popular television shows. Scheduled players include Matt Bennett, Victorious, Alex Wong, Smash, Greer Grammer, Awkward, Evan Hofer, Kickin It, Caroline Sunshine, Shake it Up, Chris O’Neal, How to Rock, Tadd Gadduang, So You Think You Can Dance, Alec Gray, True Blood, Lia Marie Johnson, Teens React, Lulu Antariksa, How to Rock, Taylor Gray, Thunderstruck, Dillon Lane, Bucket and Skinner’s Epic Adventures, Brandon SooHoo, Ender’s Game and Class Clown and many other young talented actors. DJ Colgate known for his work with some of the biggest celebrity parties in Hollywood including the Kid’s Choice Awards and HALO Awards is lending his musical talents along with the dance group Groov3 and the world famous tricking group J.A.M.

Guest will play games and enjoy great food from Freebirds World Burrito. A charity auction will feature two spots to play in the soccer game, custom Chance to Play BuildaBears, and a night of music from DJ Colgate among other valuable gifts. Celebrities will be on hand to sign autographs and take pictures at intervals throughout the day.

The soccer game will be the highlight of the day’s activities. Attendees will have the amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to jump on the field and play with their favorite TV stars. People who raise the most money for Chance to Play will earn a spot on the field for part of the game. All information about the event, fundraising, and sponsorship opportunities is available on www.chancetoplay2012.com.

All funds raised from Chance to Play 2012 will go directly to charity. In addition to growing the reach of the organization, FUNDaFIELD has fields planned for Swaziland, the Congo, and Haiti in the next year alone. Toy Box of Hope will launch a new birthday party box program as well as increase the scope of their holiday toy drive for children in homeless shelters and transitional living.
