Josh Hutcherson Raises $25,000 with Charity Basketball Game


Josh Hutcherson showed off his blonde locks during the his charity basketball game on Friday.

The 1st Annual raised $25,000 to benefit Straight But Not Narrow, an organization that Josh’s bff Avan Jogia helped start.

The tournament helped kick off the Nike 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament and brought out celebrities like Travis Van Winkle, Taylor Gray, Robbie Jones and more.

Josh is back to blonde for his role as Peeta Mellark. He’s getting ready to head to Atlanta in just a few weeks to start filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and he’s been busy training. “I’ve been training for about the last month or so now and I head out in about two weeks to go down to Atlanta to start shooting,” he recently told Ryan Seacrest. “It’s not quite intense as the first round that I did last year, but it’s just basically getting in good shape. We’re pretty much wearing these body suits the entire time, so one would like be in good shape to wear a spandex neoprene body suit for an entire movie.”
