                     Spyder Cup 2000 to Give $10,000 to
                Children's Hospital at Celebrity Exhibition Game

Pittsburgh, Pa. - The Spyder Cup 2000 scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend will be incorporating a Celebrity Game Exhibition at high noon on Sunday, May 28. A $10,000 check will also be given to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, from Arthur Chang, Founder and CEO of Kingman International.

The tournament, big game and player BBQ is being touted as the most anticipated paintball event of the year. First prize is Five Ford Mustangs, but other sensational prizes will be given down to eighth place.

Team Effort Events, co-producers of the event, have been working in conjunction with Children's Hospital to select members of the "Steelers" football team to participate in the charity exhibition game. A local sportscaster is also on tap to announce the games and add to the excitement.

Children's Hospital is currently rated the seventh best children's hospital in the United States. "Recently my daughter was hospitalized and I can't begin to express what a humbling experience it is to spend time at this world class hospital with such an extraordinary staff," quotes Debra Dion Krischke of Team Effort Events.  " I was thrilled that Kingman decided to make the
hospital the recipient of such a generous gift".

In addition to the celebrity game, the hospitals trauma unit will be on location offering mini-seminars throughout the day addressing paintball safety for kids.  "Children's Hospital is happy to be a part of the event and is working to help add something to the sport with our "on site" injury prevention team," says Shelly Johnston Tolo, a special events manager with the
hospital. "Paintball has become mainstream and because of this we are committed to educating both the parents and children in all safety aspects of the sport."
