Passions' very own Adrian Bellani (Miguel Lopez-Fitzgerald) will be hosting the upcoming Spike for HOPE celebrity volleyball tournament. Many of the show's stars will be on hand and participating in the action. Expected to attend and show off their athletic skills will be: Christopher Maleki (Spike), James Stevenson (Jared), Silvana Arias (Paloma), Charles Divins (Chad), Galen Gering (Luis), James Hyde (Sam), Emily Harper (Fancy), Phillip Jeanmarie (Vincent) and Mark Wystrach (Fox). In addition, you can expect to see the organization's spokeswoman Eva Longoria as well as Matt Cedeno, Lance Bass, Nadia Bjorlin, Gabrielle Reese, Laird Hamilton, Monica Seles, David Lipper and others.
Games will last thirty minutes with teams comprised of one pro-volleyball player a set of celebs and a place to be auctioned off. The event is being held to benefit the PADRES Contra el Cancer, an organization which works to help Latino children with cancer and their families. Although the organization is oriented primarily towards the Latino community, it does not turn away any children who come to their facilities for help. For additional information about PADRES, please visit their website here.
This event will be held on Sunday, May 20th 2007 on the beach at Hermosa beach, California. There will be AVP Pro tournament games throughout the day, but you can catch the Celebrity volleyball game between 12:00 and 12:30. This will be followed by a meet and greet with the participants. Admission is free.
