Thursday’s fourth annual Ping Pong 4 Purpose proved once again to be a happy and fun fundraiser for Kershaw’s Challenge. Here are some photo highlights on a night when Will Ferrell (wearing a Vic Davalillo jersey) was the emcee, Susan Sarandon was a special guest, Dennis Gilbert was the honoree, but Clayton Kershaw’s outfit was the star.

Jimmy Kimmel will host the third annual Ping Pong 4 Purpose fundraiser for Kershaw’s Challenge at Dodger Stadium on July 30.

Proceeds will benefit Kershaw’s Challenge, the nonprofit foundation founded by Clayton and Ellen Kershaw that works to transform at-risk communities and the lives of children in Los Angeles, Dallas, Zambia and starting this year, the Dominican Republic.

Among those scheduled to take part in the event, which features a single-elimination ping-pong tournament, include Orel Hershiser, Eric Stonestreet, George Lopez, Kevin Frazier, Jenna FIscher, Josh Henderson, Marcellus Wiley, Alan Thicke, Jaleel White, Tyler Toffoli and Lamorne Morris.

“Our PingPong4Purpose event on the field at Dodger Stadium has become a fun tradition and we are excited to host it for the third year,” Kershaw said for today’s press release. “This event combines two things: our passion for making a difference through Kershaw’s Challenge and a favorite clubhouse activity. We’re looking forward to a great night for a great cause.”

Limited tickets and sponsorship packages still remain. Visit Kershaw’s Challenge for more information.
