Hollywood Knights
Celebrity Basketball Team U.S.O. Tour

October 13 – 22, 2009
U.S. Military Bases in Italy

The Hollywood Knights is honored to be working with the United Services Organization (www.uso.org) in fulfilling our third mission of boosting troop morale by bringing celebrities over the Atlantic. The Hollywood Knights Celebrity Basketball Team will participate in a good will tour visiting various military bases throughout Italy and mixing with the families of the soldiers who have been sent downrange. The Knights will play a series of ¬basketball games against a team comprised of members of the U.S. Military troops at the various military bases. These games will provide fun and exciting competition with stars never before experienced by our troops and their families overseas.

This game will be complimentary to all United States military and Department of Defense card holders, their families, and their immediate guests on the various bases that are listed below. Please contact the base MWR for more details.

Sorry to all of our fans that are not part of the United States military and/or their families as these games will NOT be open to the general public.

We welcome you to come out and spend some time with the Hollywood Knights and experience some fun with us for just a little while. Bring your cameras and get some autographs. You might even have a chance to take a free-throw shot for the Hollywood Knights team.

The USO is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the troops by providing morale, welfare and recreation-type services to our men and women in uniform. Historically, few events have left a more lasting emotional impression on service members and their families than USO celebrity entertainment tours.
