Reckless Kelly, Wrestle Circus donating proceeds of upcoming events to Hurricane Harvey relief

The Hurricane Harvey benefit events are rolling in, but two previously scheduled upcoming events are now donating all their proceeds to relief efforts.

The Reckless Kelly Celebrity Softball Jam has raised more than $350,000 in the past eight years for local youth sports and music charities, but this year, all the proceeds from the event on Sept. 10 will go to charities benefiting Hurricane Harvey victims, the organizers announced today. They are still picking the charities, but the Nolan Ryan Foundation will collect the proceeds from the event and then distribute it to areas where need is the highest. For details about the event, including the music lineup for the concert in the outfield or which local food writer or World Series winner will be playing in the game, go to rkcsj.org.

Wrestle Circus, which is quickly becoming the biggest indie wrestling promotion in the state, announced a few days ago that their Sept. 9 show at the Travis County Expo Center would become a benefit for Hurricane Harvey relief, with all proceeds going to charities, including merch sales. You can buy tickets for the event and find out about the upcoming matches on wrestlecircus.com. Can’t attend the show?
