Bennett Bowl-A-Thon June 16

Event will benefit children with cancer

Packers running backs coach Edgar Bennett, along with many Packers players, coaches and scouts, will take to the lanes at Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley, June 16, for the third annual Edgar Bennett Celebrity Bowl-A-Thon.

The event will help raise money for The Angel Fund for Children with Cancer, Inc., an organization dedicated to giving financial and social support to families residing in Brown County whose children are receiving treatment for cancer or for bone marrow failure.

Registration for the evening begins at 6 p.m., with the bowling event and silent auction to start at 6:30. A Kraft Foods buffet is available throughout the event. Silent auction items include a shovel used in the Lambeau Field redevelopment groundbreaking ceremony signed by several players, including LeRoy Butler and Ahman Green, plus a football autographed by Aaron Rodgers and a football autographed by Paul Hornung.

Aaron Kampman and Samkon Gado have committed to participating. Many other players and coaches also will be attending the event.

Area businesses and individuals are encouraged to support the effort. Lane sponsorships are available as a way to join the fun-filled evening and bowl with a member of the Green Bay Packers family.

Corporate- and lane-level sponsorships: Two levels of sponsorship are available for a team of four bowlers per lane, to be joined by one celebrity. Each participant will receive a shirt and team photo, their company sign displayed above their lane, plus access to the Kraft Foods buffet and soda.
