CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

If you’re looking for some real fun to help kick off your child’s summer vacation, Cam Newton’s "Kick it with Cam" kickball tournament might be the perfect way to celebrate summer!

The 2nd Annual "Kick It with Cam Celebrity Kickball Tournament" will be held this Friday, June 10, at Memorial Stadium located at 310 N Kings Drive in Charlotte’s Elizabeth neighborhood.

There will be 22 teams made up of Panthers players, other celebrity athletes, entertainers, as well as business and community leaders.

The "Kick it with Cam" tournament is open to the public. Tickets will cost you $5, and you’ve got to pay with cash at the box office at Memorial Stadium.

All proceeds from ticket sales go to the Cam Newton Foundation, which describes its mission as helping local and deserving youth in the areas of education, physical fitness and wellness.

The gates to Memorial Stadium open to fans at 12:30 Friday afternoon. The first game kicks off at 1 p.m. They’re expecting the championship face-off around 6 p.m.

It should be a perfect day for the tournament with lower humidity and nice temperatures. If you go, make sure to take pictures and share with WBTV News! Mail them to sendit@wbtv.com or use #WBTVandMe on social media! Have a blast!
