SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young


First Annual Paul Rudd Bowling Benefit

1st Paul Rudd Bowling Benefit

Monday October 22, 2012

Lucky Strike, NYC

Actor Paul Rudd and fellow celebrities came together to raise awareness and funds to help kids who stutter.

Mr. Rudd, a SAY trustee, hosted this sold-out event at Lucky Strike in NYC, and was joined by celebrity lane captains David Alan Basche, Everett Brady, Mehcad Brooks, Maddie Corman, Matt Dillon, Rachel Dratch, Noah Emmerich, Jenna Leigh Green, Peter Hermann, Mariska Hargitay, Steve Kazee, Alexander Ludwig, Ollie Murs, Eve Plumb, Alysia Reiner, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Amy Ryan, Anthony Rapp, Fisher Stevens, and Eddie Kaye Thomas.

Mr. Rudd became involved with SAY while playing a character who stutters in Richard Greenberg’s “Three Days of Rain.”

“I didn’t know much about stuttering before the play,” Rudd said. “In my research I met Taro. This (disorder) is such a mysterious and tough thing to deal with for anybody, let alone a kid. I wanted to get involved and stay involved. There are a lot of challenges that kids and adults have to face,” Rudd said.
