Actor and activist Tim Robbins is to join an impressive list of hockey players and celebrities in a charity ice hockey game next week.

The Festival Cup charity hockey game at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto will take place on September 5, and will feature teams consisting of stars such as Alan Thicke, “Juno” director Jason Reitman, D.B. Sweeney, and Cameron Bancroft, as well as professional NHLers Joe Thornton, Jason Spezza, Curtis Joseph, Matt Stajan, Robyn Regehr, Mike Cammalleri, Andrew Ference, and Sean Avery.

The game – which will kick off the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival – will benefit Right To Play, an athlete-driven international humanitarian organization that uses sport and play as a tool for the development of children and youth in the most disadvantaged areas of the world.

“I believe in the positive power of sport and play for children,” said Wayne Gretzky, Honorary Chair of Right To Play’s Canadian Advisory Board. “In addition to keeping kids out of trouble and engaging them in a constructive activity, sports teach children many lessons and values including teamwork and determination. The Festival Cup is a great opportunity to help support the important initiatives of Right To Play.”

Tickets cost $25, and are available through Ticketmaster.
