Dodgeball Returns For A Charity Rematch!

Dodgeball Returns For A Charity Rematch!

White Goodman and Peter La Fleur invite you to a special dodgeball charity game in association with Omaze.

The American comedy film Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, to give it its full title, was released thirteen years ago this month.

The film told the story of Peter La Fleur, played by Vince Vaugh, who runs a gym for the average guy. However, the gym isn’t making enough money and he defaults on his mortgage payments.

The owner of the corporate successful gym across the road, White Goodman played by Ben Stiller, has offered to buy the average gym. La Fleur has thirty days to raise the money to keep Whiteman at bay and to buy back his gym.

The only way to do this is by entering a dodgeball tournament in Las Vegas.

The film was one of the highest grossing comedies that year and I personally love it too.

Now the charity organisation Omaze has teamed up with the Stiller Foundation to make your Dodgeball dream come true. You’ll get to play dodgeball with or against Ben Stiller and his team, The Purple Cobras.

Ben Stiller founded the Stiller Foundation in 2010 with the mission to support children around the world by providing educational opportunities to help them realise their full potential.

As with Omaze charity events, the more you donate, the bigger chance you’ll have of winning the grand prize which includes flights and hotels, custom made team t-shirts, the dodgeball game itself and then chilling with Ben after the match and enjoying a few slices of pizza.

Donations start at $10 and increase steadily with more perks all the way up to $5000. A lot of the big money awards have already been claimed, so you’ll have to be quick!

If you want to give a little cash to a good cause and be in with a chance of this special one-off event visit the official Omaze website. Hurry though as donations will cease to be accepted around August 10th.

The original cast of Dodgeball featuring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor, Justin Long, Missi Pyle and Jamal Duff return in this promotional video. The nearest we’ll see to an official Dodgeball sequel.

Remember, Dodge, duck, dip, dive, dodge!
