Oceanside CA— Hollywood’s bravest talent battled at Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, California, this past weekend raising thousands of dollars for Adrian Paul’s PEACE Fund and its supported charities while trending on twitter. The first annual celebrity paintball tournament was host to a star-studded roster, paintball professionals, fans from Los Angeles to San Diego and even those at home. The Hunger Games styled event was the first interactive paintball tournament, where fans who anxiously watched from home were able to help their favorite teams by donating “resources,” to give them advantages in the game. Attendees enjoyed a day of festivities, including paintball challenge courses and a celebrity paintball battle while raising funds and awareness for PEACE Fund, a charity that is committed to educating and protecting children around the world.

After a rigorous and colorful game, Rene and Casey Nezhoda, Stefano Langone, Dalal Bruchmann, Carrie Keagan, Luke Goss, Ryan Edge and Ryan Greenspan were victorious, earning donations for both PEACE Fund and their “districts,” PADRES Contra El Cáncer, The Animal Welfare Institute and Saint Judes Research. The painted carpet was also graced by, PEACE Fund founder, Adrian Paul, Bail Ling, Matthew Espinosa (Social Influencer), NFL stars Hank Baskett, Jackie Long (Real Husbands of Hollywood), Kyle Massey (Dancing with the Stars), Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You), Stefano Langone (American Idol Finalist), Robbie Jones (Tyler Perry’s Temptation) and Carrie Keagan, to name a few.
