Jamie Lynn Sigler and UJA Helping to Give Jewish Youngsters a "Smashing" Great Summer
SMASH charitable ping pong tournament to also feature Martin Short and Billy Baldwin
On Thursday March 1, 2012, at Toronto’s Kool Haus (132 Queen’s Quay East) get ready for a pulse-racing, action-packed, and incredibly fun evening of celebrities, sportsmanship, entertainment and of course, ping pong!
Chaired by Canadian comedy legend, and a judge on Canada’s Got Talent!, Martin Short, participants have the chance to play ping pong with celebrities including Short, Tony Soprano’s daughter and a star of Entourage, Jamie Lynn Sigler and actor Billy Baldwin.
Funds raised through SMASH will drastically improve the lives of countless Jewish youngsters across the Greater Toronto Area.
Proceeds will help ensure that thousands of boys and girls will take advantage of an important opportunity – one that they might not have otherwise – to enjoy the lifelong benefits that go with attending Jewish summer and day camps.
Studies have shown that attending summer camps, or Jewish day camps, result in an increased Jewish identity and connection to Israel, not to mention the lifelong friendships that are formed between campers.
Through United Jewish Appeal’s Camping Subsidy Program, and made possible by UJA’s partner agencies Jewish Family & Child (JF&CS) and JIAS, Jewish children from low-income families will receive scholarships to attend Jewish summer camp, guaranteeing them a summer that they’ll never forget!
The Ball is now in your court! Smash’s main event features 40 teams consisting of three people each, playing three mixed doubles matches over the course of approx., four hours all while enjoying great food, a live auction and more. This is one event you don’t want to miss!
Not a Ping Pong Pro? Absolutely no experience is required. Our goal is to “serve up” an incredibly interactive good time, allowing everyone from novice to pro to register, fundraise and participate!
The name of the game is to have fun while raising funds, awareness and drastically improving the lives of countless Jewish youngsters across the Greater Toronto Area.
SMASH is one game where everybody wins!
