Cavaliers players Matthew Dellavedova and Anderson Varejao, Browns All-Pro offensive tackle Joe Thomas and other Cleveland professional athletes will square off Sept. 29 in a celebrity ping pong tournament to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland.

Battle for the Paddle, a table tennis tournament involving Cleveland pro athletes and one amateur, will take place from 6 – 9 p.m. at Danny Vegh’s, 6505 Mayfield Road, Mayfield Heights.  All event proceeds – including the $5,000 donated by the amateur participant – will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs.

Cost is $300 per person and includes food, drinks, music and the chance to mingle with the players.  There will also be a silent auction and valet service.

You can purchase tickets online or by phone at 216-883-2106.

“This is a terrific way for folks to have a fun night out and help the kids who depend on our clubs for a safe, wholesome place to play and learn valuable life skills,” said BGCC president Ron Soeder.

Soeder said while Dellavedova, Varejao and Thomas are confirmed participants, other members of the Cavs and Browns are expected to participate.  “You never know who might show up with a paddle,” he said.

The benefit is made possible by presenting sponsor Danny Vegh’s, one of the top home entertainment retailers in the country.
