The third annual Bowl For Ronnie bowling party, benefiting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund, will take place on Friday, October 6, at the Pinz Bowling Center in Studio City, California. The event, hosted by Eddie Trunk, 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 (see below).
The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. 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 N' ROSES, Lita Ford, members of the Grammy-nominated group STONE SOUR and many more. Last year, John 5 and Tom Morello, as members of Eddie Trunk's bowling team, took top honors for the highest celebrity bowling team score.
Radio personality Eddie Trunk will once again host the event and captain his own bowling team at the event. Additionally, L.A.'s rock station KLOS will sponsor a bowling team made up of on-air personalities and celebrity musicians.
100% of the net proceeds from the Bowl For Ronnie will go to the Dio Cancer Fund. Individual tickets and lane sponsorships are now on sale, and participants are encouraged to gather friends, family and co-workers for the ultimate bowling team.
