Drew Carey's sidekick tees up here Thursday

"Ryan Stiles, who plays Lewis on the Drew Carey Show, is scheduled to play in Celebrity Golf XXIV at the Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club Thursday.The annual tournament and auction benefits the Federal Way Boys & Girls Club. He's one of the biggest celebrities that we've ever had, said Jon Evans, the Federal Way branch executive director.Former KOMO-TV 4 sports anchor Bruce King will once again host the tournament. The two $1 million shots will again be shown live on KOMO.For Evans, who replaced longtime club director Lynn Templeton last year, the weather is a top concern. In each of the 23 years Templeton oversaw the event, it never rained. When Templeton announced his resignation to the club staff, Evans told him it's going to rain this year.I've been obsessing about it since August, Evans said Monday. We're hoping (KOMO weatherman) Steve Lewis will come through for us one more time. Of all the days this week, it looks like it's going to be the best.Along with Stiles and King, the celebrity list includes former and present Seattle SuperSonics announcers Bob Blackburn and Kevin Calabro; former Denver Bronco Floyd Little; KJR personalities Jeff the fisherman Aaron and Mitch Levy; KCPQ sports reporter Brent Ringenbach; former Washington State Governor Booth Gardner and Emerald Downs President Ron Crockett. Due to some last-minute cancellations, there are some spots still available. The cost to golf is $250 per player. Call the club at 941-2722 for more information."
