Stars, smiles and grand-slams lit up the Kelowna stadium at the the NHL baseball fundraiser for charity on June 24, and 25.

NHL stars Blake Comeau and Josh Gorges were out swinging with a stacked team of heavy-hitter friends at the Gorges Comeau Homebase Slo-Pitch Charity Tournament.

In attendance were 22 current and former NHL players, including brothers Brayden and Luke Schenn, Tyson Barrie, Jordin Tootoo, Carey Price, Shea Weber, Brendan Gallagher and Justin Schultz were up to bat at the event.

The goal of the program is to build a sustainable, inclusive, and accessible mental health care system.
