Once again, the stars and their celebrity guests will play softball at Kauffman Stadium before a Friday Royals game (the boys in blue will be hosting the Oakland A’s June 1-3). The next day the celebrities will have a bowling tournament at Pinstripes in Overland Park and then head to the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland that night for the annual auction.
