KiKi Shepard, the face of Showtime at the Apollo, recently hosted The K.I.S. Foundation’s 10th Annual Celebrity Bowling Challenge at the PINZ Entertainment Center in Studio City, California. The fundraiser benefits her foundation whose purpose is to bring awareness to Sickle Cell Disease. The K.I.S. Foundation is committed to improving the social health and quality of life for children, adults and families living with the disease.

The bowling event included 32 teams of celebrities so the list and red carpet arrivals were long. I was able to greet KiKi Shepard herself, Alimi Ballard (Fox “Dark Angel”); Rocky Carroll (CBS “NCIS”); Yvette Nicole Brown (Nickelodeon “Drake & Josh”); Salli Richardson Whitfield (I Am Legend) and husband Dondre; Dorian Missick ("The Manchurian Candidate"); Glynn Turnman (Showtime “House of Lies”); Omar J. Dorsey (Django Unchained); Vanessa Bell Calloway (The Temptations); Aldis Hodges (TNT “Leverage”); Eugene Byrd (Anacondas), and Dondre Whitfield (ABC “All My Children”) and wife Salli— just to name a few as they arrived.

KiKi is a graduate of Howard University and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and is best known as the co-host of “Showtime at the Apollo” with the fashionable dresses.
