True Blood fans will be excited to learn that Nelsan Ellis, star of the award-winning HBO series, will join stars of the Twilight movie series to take part in a charity baseball game to benefit Haitian Relief Efforts by the Red Cross and Hope for Haiti.
The game will take place in New Orleans on March 20, and will also feature Chaske Spencer (Sam Uley in New Moon), Alex Meraz (Paul in New Moon), Daniel Cudmore, and Tyson Houseman and Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints players Garrett Hartley and Kyle Eckel, actors Wayne Morgan, Sam Medina, Thomas Hyde III and more.
Highlights of this unique baseball adventure include watching an exhibition game, getting autographs and photos with the stars, meet and greets, and an exciting after-party and concert. 25% of net proceeds from each celebrity baseball ticket sale will go towards these Haitian Relief organizations to support their ongoing efforts to rebuild lives destroyed by this disaster. A portion of proceeds will also be used to support New Orleans non-profit organizations such as The Blood Center and the 9th Ward Field of Dreams. In addition to the game, The Blood Center will host an on-site blood drive.
Tickets ($25) and more info are available here.
