I am so excited to again be an honorary captain for Pongapalooza this year. Two of my actual greatest loves—ping pong and books—come together for a night of feel-good competition.

Not only is it an absurd amount of fun, but it’s also benefitting the extraordinary First Book Canada, which provides access to books for children in need.

It all goes down on May 10 (6-9pm) at SPiN on King West in Toronto. Paddles up!
