Oceanside CA— The PEACEFund will host its inaugural, star-studded paintball tournament, at the Camp Pendleton Paintball Park 1700 Vandegrift. December 6 -8. The event is an effort to raise awareness and funds for children’s causes and support children plagued by troubling issues.
The weekend will also strive to set a world record for the largest paintball battle. In addition to benefiting PEACEfund’s cause, this will be the first interactive paintball event that allows celebrities to represent their own charity, with the winning party choosing where proceeds will be donated.
The first Annual ‘PeaceFund’ Games is the brain-child of Adrian Paul known best for the TV series ‘Highlander’, during a conversation with actor Luke Goss, on the weekly radio show, Peace Fund Radio. Several months later, when actor Cas Anvar came on the same show, the games began to take shape. It has been the intent of the Peace Fund(Protect, Educate, Aid, Children. Everywhere), to collaborate with various charities to support them logistically and financially, while partnering on initiatives to help children around the world. Now the Peace Fund Games has furthered that idea, with celebrities raising awareness and funds for the causes they support.
Some of the stars participating in the event include: Adrian Paul (Highlander), Robbie Jones (Tyler Perry’s Temptation), Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi (Shahs of Sunset) Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly (Big Brother), Jackie Long (VH1’s Real Husbands of Hollywood), Robbie Amell (CW’s The Tomorrow People), Bret Lockett (NFL Player), Stefano Langone (American Idol Finalist), Dan Bilzerian (Professional Poker Player) Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You), Angelique Bates (Musician), Kyle Massey (ABC’s Dancing with the Stars), Walter Jones (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), Jackie Christie (VH1’s Basketball Wives LA), Nate Adams (Pro BMX Rider), Booboo Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Jacqueline Toboni (NBC’s Grimm) and more.

How PEACEFund Games Work
Each participating celebrity will chose his/her perspective charity to support.
Friday – At check in and at the players party there will be information about these selected charities, so those participating can see the causes chosen to be represented.
Saturday – We begin with the five-man tournament. Twelve teams, each with three collegiate players and two celebrities, battle for a chance to win the top three places, to raise funds for each of the charities they support, by eliminating the competing teams. At the end of the five-man tournament there will be a Battle Royale. Twelve celebrities shooting it out, one on one, til the last one remains. The champion, will gain an extra donation for the charity of their choice.
For those not playing in the five-man tournament there will be other paintball challenges, a practice area, as well as a Trade show to spend the day.
Sunday – Two generals, Adrian Paul (Blue Team) and Carrie Keagan,(Red Team), will rally their troops to win the Title, Champion of the first Annual Peace Fund Games. During this part of the event the teams will be completing missions, collecting props and territories.
This will all lead up to a large scale, one hour final battle in which Generals Keagan and Paul will lead their troops for the ultimate prize, Champion of the first ever annual Peace Fund Games. Cash prizes will go to the charities of the Celebrities on the winning team. Celebrities can also gain monetary prizes for their cause, by completing secret missions during this exciting one-day extravaganza.
