Exciting news has dropped on this Monday morning. The Three Rivers Celebrity Softball game is back for another year! Why is this important to SteelerNation? Because Cam Heyward’s charity, the Heyward House, is the direct beneficiary from this game. Oh, and not to mention Heyward, and several of his teammates will be there to play in the game!
The game will be hosted by former Pitt All-American, Dorin Dickerson.
“Year number two of the Three Rivers Celebrity Softball game presented by The Coury Firm and benefiting the Heyward House is going to be exciting,” said Dickerson. “It’s going to be bigger and better this year. I can’t wait to see everyone, enjoy a nice day and give back!”
Dickerson currently hosts a radio show on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, and has continually given back to his community. Audacy and its family of radio stations in the Pittsburgh area, which includes, 93.7 The Fan, Y108, KDKA-AM and Star 100.7, will once again be the media partner of the Wild Things for the event.
The Coury Firm will once again present the softball game.
“Cam has been a steward of the community and we are excited to partner with him and his Foundation again this year,” said Greg G Coury, CEO of The Coury Firm. “As a Pittsburgh-based business and family, we are honored to work alongside Cam and the Heyward House, which provides support and care for Pittsburgh-area youth.”
The event raised $10,097 for the Heyward House last year.
The Heyward House is dedicated to impacting the lives of today’s youth and was started in 2015 by Steelers defensive end, five-time Pro Bowler and three-time NFL All-Pro Cameron Heyward. Among the causes The Heyward House supports are the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania, the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation, which fights against blood cancer, the Western PA Diaper Bank, Beverly’s Birthdays, Donors Choose and more.
“The Heyward House is excited about the 2nd Annual Celebrity Softball Game with the Washington Wild Things,” said Heyward House executive director Charlotte Heyward. “Cam and his crew will be preparing in the off season. Get your popcorn ready!”
This year the game will feature Pittsburgh based celebrities, athletes, and entertainers against those from other cities. Last season was a mix of Pittsburgh vs Pittsburgh. Thus they’ve given it the title ‘Pittsburgh VS The World’.
“It’s a great honor to host this event for Cam, a multi-year Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee, and his foundation. The work he does directly impacts the youth here in our region and we are proud to partner with and contribute to the Heyward House,” said president and general manager Tony Buccilli. “Our goal is for the game to be one of the foundational fundraisers for The Heyward House and the premier celebrity event in the tri-state for fans.”
