Normally, when you put a bunch of the biggest Jeopardy! winners in a room, it’s to defend their honor as one of the show’s greats in the Tournament of Champions. However, this weekend, they’re going to battle it out in a different arena for a cause. On Saturday, Amy Schneider, Matt Amodio, James Holzhauer, Buzzy Cohen, and more are taking part in the Titan Throwdown in Las Vegas to benefit Project 150, a non-profit providing “free support and services to homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students.”
The showdown even got a shoutout from Ken Jennings, who gave the charity event a boost on Twitter. He also worked in a friendly jab at Holzhauer, who will have to hold his own against a throng of Jeopardy! champs.
“Whoa, this is some lineup!” Jennings tweeted. “And benefits a great cause. (NOT just @James_Holzhauer getting smacked around. A Las Vegas nonprofit called Project 150.)”
