The third annual BOWL FOR RONNIE Bowling Party, benefiting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund (www.diocancerfund.org), will take place on Friday, October 6, 2017 at Pinz Bowling Center in Studio City, California. The event will include a celebrity bowling tournament and a raffle drawing. Last year’s BOWL FOR RONNIE brought in $36,500 for the cancer charity, which is now in its eighth year of raising awareness and much-needed funding for cancer research.
BOWL FOR RONNIE participants can anticipate an evening of fun, food, and, of course, bowling with rockers and celebrities competing for trophies in the name of raising funds and awareness for the Dio Cancer Fund. Among the raffle prizes will be a specially-designed bowling ball and pin featuring the BOWL FOR RONNIE artwork (which is pictured above).
The event kicks off at 6:30 PM with open bowling and a VIP pre-party for lane sponsors, celebrities and their guests. Previous BOWL FOR RONNIE events brought together entertainers and artists such as Grammy award winning duo Tenacious D featuring Jack Black and Kyle Gass, Tom Morello (Prophets Of Rage & Rage Against The Machine), John 5, members of Mastodon, Steven Adler of Guns and Roses, Lita Ford, members of the Grammy nominated group Stone Sour and many more. Last year John 5 and Tom Morello who as members of Eddie Trunk‘s bowling team, took top honors for the highest celebrity bowling team score.
