Bowling tournament to support Sickle Cell Anemia

This Sunday at Earl Anthony’s Dublin Bowl, there will be a bowling tournament with the money raised going to Children’s Hospital in Oakland to support research for sickle cell anemia. The tournament is a partnership between the bowling alley and Tennyson High baseball coach Jack Jordan, who a year ago lost a daughter to the disease. It’s $30 to participate in the tournament, with a noon check-in time. Bowling begins at 1 p.m. There will be prizes given away throughout the tournament. I’m not sure if this adds to or hinders the event, but it will be an opportunity to meet two of your East Bay Prep Corner bloggers as myself and Michael Bower will be participating. For more information or to donate to the cause, contact the bowling alley at (925) 828-7550.

p.s. Take it easy on me if I stink it up in the lanes, it’s been a couple years since I bowled. However, I do guarantee that I’ll top that score of 37 that President Obama recorded.
