The stars of GUIDING LIGHT will be coming together again to benefit The Autism Society of America with the 17th Annual Daytime Stars and Strikes Virtual Charity Event on Sunday, Oct. 10, from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. ET live in The Locher Room!
Beginning in 2004, GL stars Jerry verDorn (Ross) and Elizabeth Keifer (Blake) established Daytime Stars and Strikes to raise awareness and money for autism, beginning with an afternoon of bowling with actors from the daytime soaps that taped in New York City. The events have continued, even after the East Coast soaps were canceled, however, due to the ongoing global pandemic, the 2021 event will be held virtually in The Locher Room.
The 17th Annual Daytime Stars and Strikes will be hosted by verDorn and Keifer along with Michael O’Leary (Rick) and will feature over 30 GL stars including Grant Aleksander (Philip), Crystal Chappell (Olivia), Kassie DePaiva (Chelsea), Franc Dicopoulos (Frank), Rick Hearst (Alan-Michael), Maeve Kinkead (Vanessa), Robert Newman (Josh), Paul Anthony Stewart (Danny), Gina Tognoni (Dinah), and Kim Zimmer (Reva), just to name a few! So be sure to tune in and to visit www.daytimestarsandstrikes.com to donate to this worthy cause!

The YouTube shows are also available as audio podcasts and can be found wherever you listen to podcasts on Amazon, Apple, Google, iHeartRadio, Spotify, and Spreaker.
