SAN DIEGO – May 11, 2012 — The San Diego Chapter of After-School All-Stars announces the fifth annual “Party Like an All-Star” Dodgeball Tournament on Friday, June 8, 2012 at 6 p.m. The charity invites local businesses and the community to form teams, dress in costume and play dodgeball at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. Proceeds from the annual dodgeball tournament benefit San Diego After-School All-Stars to help provide adequate after-school programming for underprivileged youth. 

Community members and local businesses are encouraged to round up their all-star teams and join the competition to vie for this year’s championship title. Each team is judged on the creativity of their name, costume theme and overall dodgeball performance. As players dip, duck, dive and dodge, glory will be given to only one all-star champion team who will walk away with $500 in prizes.
