Celebrity bowling challenge set for April 8
Baton Rouge Bowling Proprietors will host the “Mayor’s Celebrity Bowling Challenge to Strikeout Hunger” with Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, Saturday, April 8, benefiting the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
Broome will be joined by television anchors and reporters, and other local celebrities at the Raising Cane’s River Center. The event begins with a VIP reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and bowling from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. More than 200 people are expected to participate.
“This is a fun event for the whole community and it raises money for a great cause,” Broome said. “The Food Bank was hit hard by the flood, so this fundraiser will help them move forward in their recovery efforts.”
The bowling challenge is a kickoff for the United States Bowling Congress Women’s Championships, which will be held in Baton Rouge starting April 23. The Mayor’s Celebrity Challenge was last held in 2012 during the USBC Open Championships in Baton Rouge.
The challenge is being sponsored by the USBC, Dudley DeBosier Injury Lawyers, the Kiwanis Club of Cortana and others.
Tickets are also available for $50 per person for those who want to attend the event, but don’t want to bowl. For more information, contact call Marc Pater at 225-603-5914 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
