For a good cause

From the Reds (I know from Meet the Reds that Brandon Phillips has bowled several 300 games):

At 4:00 p.m. tomorrow (Wed, 8/22) in the field level interview room at Great American Ball Park, Ken Griffey Jr. and Cincinnati Children's Hospital president and chief executive officer Jim Anderson will host a press conference detailing Griffey's Stars and Strikes for Kids Celebrity Bowl.

The fundraiser will be held Wednesday, September 5 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. at AMF Kingpin Lanes at 7735 Beechmont Road.

Already scheduled to participate in the celebrity bowl are Adam Dunn, Brandon Phillips and many of their Reds teammates, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, NFL Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas, former NFL All-Pro Ricky Watters, former NBA All-Star Dee Brown and current NBA All-Stars Chris Paul and Dwight Howard.

The event is closed to the public, but a limited number of lanes are available for sponsorship at $5,000 each.

For more information on the Stars and Strikes For Kids Celebrity Bowl, contact Sherman Brown at (407) 401-2884 or ShermanBrown@aol.com.

Maybe Mike Stanton can bowl. Most lefties score very well on the bowling lanes.

Being a bowling charity and everything, you'd think they could invite an actual professional bowler from the area like, say, Brian Himmler!


Maybe you could pass that along John.

Yeah, I'm not going unless the pba is represented. How bout ? ? ?

Ok, I don't know any pro bowlers.
