The Hollywood Knights celebrity basketball team has arrived in Norway to raise money for children with cancer.
Pop star Aaron Carter will head a spectacular lineup of stars on the court at Haukelandshallen Arena in Bergen for the 2nd annual Hollywood Knights Celebrity Charity Basketball Game. Joining him against a dream team of Norwegian celebrities for an unforgettable game to raise money for charity will be Desperate Housewives’ Andrea Bowen, Joy Lauren and Josh Henderson, as well as Stephen Colletti (Laguna Beach, One Tree Hill_), Paula Trickey (_Pacific Blue, The O.C.), model Marcus Schenckenberg, Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You_), Adrian R’Mante (_The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), Kyle Lowder (Days of Our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful_), Blake Lewis (American Idol_), Chris Richardson (American Idol_), Adam Sevani (Step Up 2: The Streets_), Jon Chu (Step Up 2: The Streets) and Denyce Lawton (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne).
The game – which takes place on August 14 – will raise funds for the Norwegian Cancer Society Children’s Ward, a non-profit organization working to reduce the incidence of cancer, and to provide cancer patient services, research, prevention programs and advocacy. Thousands of fans and spectators worldwide are expected to attend the game for an unforgettable night of fun and fundraising. Celebrities that have participated in the previous Norway tour include Joey Fatone, Nick Carter, Aaron Carter, Amaury Nolasco, Marshall Allman, David Faustino, Matt Czuchry, and Shane West.
The Hollywood Knights Basketball Team is the brainchild of international sports producer David Mirisch, whose idea of putting sports stars against teachers to raise funds for high schools was born in 1978.
