Cheers" co-stars Ted Danson, Rhea Perlman, and John Ratzenberger, along with Parker Stevenson, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Lori Petty of "A League of Their Own," Chrystal Bernard of "Wings," Billy Sheehan of Mr. Big, Hollywood stuntman "Wild Bill" Mock and Hollywood's Honorary Mayor Johnny Grant, were among the many celebrities who joined a team of celebrities in Narconon's 13th Annual Celebrity Softball Game in Los Angeles against the KNAC Pure Rock 105.5 team.
The KNAC DJs were accompanied by drummer Rob Alfuso of Skid Row and guitarist Gilby Clark of Guns 'N' Roses.
Alarmed by the rising statistics of drug abuse, Alley and other top Hollywood celebrities came with a message of the importance of being drug-free. Alley stated, "If you want the answer to the question, 'Is it cool to do drugs?', ask Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, John Belushi, Sid Vicious . .. . "
Kirstie Alley said she did the Narconon program 13 years ago and has remained drug-free ever since and is now Narconon's international spokesperson.
Contributions raised from the ball game go towards delivering drug education in local communities. Each year, Narconon's drug education program reaches thousands of people in schools, youth organizations, correctional facilities, corporations and civic organizations in and around communities where there are Narconon centers.
"The truth about drugs is that the really good pleasures in life are natural, not chemical," says John Duff, president of Narconon International. "Our job at Narconon is to do all we can to promote that drug-free fun and drug-free lifestyles are so much more fulfilling."
