Mark your calendar! On Thursday, July 19, Doug Gilmour will be hosting his first Annual Celebrity Slo-Pitch Classic.

The inaugural "Dougieball" event will take place at the Christie Pits Park in Toronto, Ontario (Bloor Street West and Christie Street). The event will be FREE for the public to attend. Guest appearances include Doug Gilmour himself, current and former NHL athletes, other professional athletes and celebrities. Entertainment will be provided by a live DJ and celebrity speakers. Real Sports Bar & Grill will be on-site for participants and spectators to enjoy a classic ball game snack.

Dougieball is proud to support the MLSE Team Up Foundation (TUF) in their mandate to change kids lives through the spirit and power of sports.  TUF aims to improve the lives of youth by refurbishing athletic facilities, giving to sustainable programs and empowering youth through sports and recreation. Event fundraising initiatives will include an opportunity to get a photo with Doug Gilmour to commemorate the day and official Dougieball autographed merchandise. 

We look forward to seeing you on July 19 when friends, fans, sponsors and media gather for this remarkable event to support a great cause.

How can one actually play in this event? I’d gladly donate $500 to play and spend another $2000+ on the silent auction later as I always do
