ROUND ROCK, Texas - Wish For Our Heroes will be at Dell Diamond for the 9th annual Reckless Kelly's Celebrity Softball Jam this Sunday collecting donations to aid in Hurricane Harvey cleanup efforts.
The non-profit said the biggest need is for cleaning supplies, garbage bags, rakes, tarps, tools and gift cards to home improvement stores. Additionally, they will collect new and gently used sports equipment and musical instruments to take to those in the affected areas that lost their gear or instruments in the storm and its aftermath.
All proceeds from the Celebrity Softball Jam are going straight to help with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts through Rebuild Texas. There will be a silent auction on the concourse featuring an autographed Josh Beckett jersey, a Willie Robertson autographed baseball and more. Proceeds from the auction will also go to Rebuild Texas.
The Jam features a celebrity softball game followed by a two-stage concert featuring over 30 acts. An all-star roster will take the field for an antic-filled celebrity softball game. Former Longhorns Ricky Williams, Cat Osterman, Quan Cosby, Kasey Studdard, Brooks Kieschnick and Greg Swindell will join MLB All-Stars Josh Beckett and Norm Charlton and more in the dugouts at Dell Diamond.
The packed musical lineup features Jack Ingram, American Aquarium, Randy Rogers, Roger Creager, Wade Bowen, Kevin Fowler, Cody Canada & the Departed, Midnight River Choir, Suzy Bogguss, Jamie Lin Wilson, John Evans, Charlie Robison, Rosie Flores, Jessie Dayton, Jason Eady, Mike and the Moonpies, Shinyribs, Bart Crow, Courtney Patton and more.
Since its inception, the Jam has raised over $350,000 through the Reckless Kelly Charitable Youth Foundation for area youth leagues, including the funding of a $150,000 renovation of Mabson Field in East Austin, TX.
