Celebrity 8-Ball Shootout

Thur, June 28, 2018 • 5-11pm • North Market

The Celebrity 8-Ball Shootout was created in 2004 and has since become a signature event to raise funds for The 2nd & 7 Foundation. The concept is simple - each team (or sponsor) competes in a double-elimination pool tournament with a celebrity player on each team. Through the years, we have welcomed many local celebrities including Thad Matta, Greg Oden, Urban Meyer, Joey Galloway, John Cooper, Kirk Herbstreit, A.J. Hawk, Pierre Woods, Bobby Carpenter, and many more.

This night is truly one-of-a-kind and has become the 'must-attend' event of the summer.

The 2nd & 7 Foundation

The 2nd & 7 Foundation Reading Program

Mission: To promote reading by providing free books and positive role models to kids in need while encouraging young athletes of the community to pay it forward.

The 2nd & 7 Foundation was founded in 1999 by three former OSU football players – Luke Fickell, Ryan Miller and Mike Vrabel - who wanted to continue to give back to their community. Since 1999, The 2nd & 7 Foundation has given away over 100,000 books to kids in need all across the country. In the 2012-2013 school year alone, The 2nd & 7 Foundation visited over 160 schools and gave away over 17,000 books.

Tackling Illiteracy: The 'Tackling Illiteracy' reading program began in central Ohio and is now being implemented in communities all over the nation. As a part of this program, college or high school student-athletes visit 2nd graders in local elementary schools to read to them, talk about the importance of their education and give every child a free book to take home. The focus is on schools with high populations of students on free or reduced lunch plans or communities that need it the most. A donation of just $25 allows us to ship 120 books to a school anywhere in the country.
