HAW Celebrity Softball Game

The rumors are true. Drake is bringing Houston Appreciation Weekend back for the second consecutive year. Except it’s happening much sooner than you think.

As in, Memorial Day Weekend soon.

Indeed, Drake and the October’s Very Own camp revealed this morning that “HAW2” is set for next week. The first event on deck? Another celebrity sporting event, only this time, it’s a Charity Softball Game, rather than a basketball one, set for May 22nd. The HAW Celebrity Softball Game will benefit the Astros’ Urban Youth Academy. Expected participants in the Celebrity Softball game include former Houston Astros Chris Sampson and Brandon Backe, NFL players Duane Brown and Dwayne Bowe, and Houston hip-hop artists Kirko Bangz, P. Reign, with others no doubt to be named sooner than later. The game itself will take place at the University of Houston Cougar Field at 7:00 PM, with a “Home Run Derby” prior to the game beginning at 6 PM.

You can expect more and more details to roll out about HAW2 as the week goes on. Somewhere in there, you can bet there’s a pool party and a concert involved at the VERY least. If you’ve already made Memorial Day weekend plans, well… you might want to rethink those.
