On behalf of Strikes For Kids, I would like to cordially invite you, your friends and family to participate in The Third Annual Strikes For Kids Cleveland Bowling Classic. The double session bowling event hosted by Browns’ standouts defensive lineman Danny Shelton and linebacker Christian Kirksey will be taking place on Sunday August 20, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Freeway Lanes, located at 12859 Brookpark Rd, Cleveland, OH 44130. This fundraiser has been or near a sell out each year it’s been held as well as all our events nationally. I advise you to rally your team together quickly so you don’t miss out on an incredible afternoon of fun. Strikes For Kids welcomes all ages and skill levels so whether you come with your co-workers or for a family outing with the kids we look forward to seeing you on the lanes.
Proceeds from the event will go to benefiting The Strikes For Kids Back 2 School Bonanza as well as a local animal protective agency that will be available for pet adoptions. Danny Shelton is a well-known dog advocate who has a passion for bringing the community together for this charity event with the hope of finding these animals places to call home. The Bonanza will provide a minimum of 75 students from the local surrounding communities with backpacks filled with school supplies presented to them by Mr. Kirksey. These backpacks will help ensure students are prepared to get off to a successful start to the school year.
