Bennett Bowl-A-Thon June 3

Many Green Bay Packers players, coaches and staff members will gather Friday, June 3, at Riviera Lanes in Green Bay for the Edgar Bennett Celebrity Bowl-A-Thon.

It's the second time Bennett, former Packers running back and the team's current running backs coach, will host the event. The inaugural outing was in 2003.

Proceeds from the event will go to The Angel Fund for Children with Cancer Inc. The organization is dedicated to giving financial and social support to families residing in Brown County whose children are receiving treatment for cancer or bone marrow failure.

The bowling outing will start at 6 p.m.

Among the Packers players scheduled to participate are Donald Driver, Robert Ferguson, Ahman Green, Najeh Davenport, Rob Davis, Grady Jackson, Tony Fisher and Joey Thomas.

Area businesses and individuals can register for a lane sponsorship for the opportunity to bowl with a Packer.

Cost for lane sponsorship is $1,000 for a team of four bowlers. Each participant will receive a shirt and a team photo, plus have access to a food buffet as well as soda.

For more information or to register, call the Packers community relations department at 569-7500.
