Former San Diego Chargers Jacques Cesaire and Darren Bennett are set to host the 10th Annual Charity Bowling Party along with Chargers Defensive End, Kendall Reyes. The event will be held at Kearny Mesa Bowl located at 7585 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard on Monday, November 11th, 2013 from 6:00 – 10:00 p.m. Funds raised from the event will benefit the Pro Player Foundation and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research. The eldest son of 2012 Charger Hall of Fame inductee, Darren Bennett, Will, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Pro Player Foundation created Will’s Special Team to raise money and awareness to put an end to this disease.
Each year, JBowl hosts families from Rady Children’s Hospital so they can get away for an evening and share a special night with the Chargers. Past JBowl Rady Children’s Hospital supporters include NFL Punter Mat McBriar, Ben Graham, Sav Rocca of the Washington Redskins, Chris Kluwe of the Oakland Raiders and Cullen Loeffler of the Minnesota Vikings and Mike Scifres and David Binn of the San Diego Chargers. Several current and former San Diego Chargers players also came out last November to support the cause including Seyi Ajirotutu, Curtis Brinkley, Hank Bauer, Antoine Cason, Antonio Garay, Quentin Jammer, Corey Liuget, Ryan Mathews, Nick Novak, Kendall Reyes, Mike Scifres, Jamal Williams, Takeo Spikes, Darrell Stuckey, Vincent Brown and Atari Bigby.
2012 corporate sponsors of the event bowled with some of their favorite current and former NFL players and mugged for photos. Guests were treated to culinary creations from Asti Ristorante, Daisy’s Cajun Kitchen, Sushi Lounge Poway and Encinitas, House of Blues, Rama, Osteria Panenvino, and Nothing Bundt Cakes. D’Lush, Vitamin Water and ONEHOPE Wine provided beverages for the bowlers.
The event included a live and silent auction, with some amazing items to bid on such as a weeklong getaway to Spain, a custom Taylor Electric Guitar, JetBlue Airline tickets, House of Blues concert and dinner package and priceless sports memorabilia. Special thanks to corporate sponsors EMD Millipore, Davlyn Investments, Mad Catz, Pillow Pets, Le Dimora, Hudson Printing, ResorTime.com and emcee Hank Bauer.
