Domino's Pizza will join local celebrities as it hosts the Fast Ball for Charity Competition to benefit Harlem RBI in New York and the Feltonville Boys & Girls Club in Philadelphia. The competition kicks off just before the New York and Philadelphia baseball match up in Philadelphia on today at 5 p.m.

Guest pitchers such as Philadelphia Police Commissioner Sylvester M. Johnson, local media personalities, and more will battle on the mound for the two charities. Each pitch clocked over 60 mph will earn $100 for Harlem RBI and Feltonville Boys & Girls Club, earning up to a $5,000 combined donation from Domino's Pizza. The event takes place at the Holiday Inn Philadelphia Stadium (pavilion).

"Harlem RBI is honored that its friends in the City of Brotherly love are stepping up to the plate for the inner-city youth," says Richard Berlin, executive director, Harlem RBI. "We know that no matter how fast a pitch Domino's delivers, this will be a home run for our kids."

The pre-game event is open to the public and will be filled with music and fun from Philly's Q102 crew, giveaways, and FREE Domino's Philly Cheese Steak and Brooklyn Style Pizza. The event celebrates Domino's current national promotion of these two customer favorite pizzas with big city flavors.

"The big, foldable slices with extra large toppings of our Brooklyn Style Pizza and the slices loaded with steak and cheese of a Philly Cheese Steak Pizza have inspired a big city taste debate," says Dana Harville, Domino's Pizza spokeperson. "We're excited to team up with these two wonderful groups to help celebrate both of these great cities and the pizzas they've inspired."
