Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association Partners with Stars and Strikes All Star Bash Celebrity Bowling Bash to Raise Money for the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona
Some of the best retired and current professional baseball players and other celebrities are stepping up to help combat drownings in the greater Phoenix area, supporting the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona.
Already in 2011, there have been 16 deaths, including 7 children that have resulted from 39 Water Related Incidents this year in Maricopa County, including Phoenix and surrounding areas.
To combat this startling statistic, the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona (DPCA) and the Turnbow Foundation will team up with the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association to host the Stars and Strikes All Star Celebrity Bowling Bash on Sunday, July 10, 2011 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Lucky Strike Lanes in downtown Phoenix for an evening of bowling, live entertainment, and charity.
“This is an incredible opportunity to raise awareness for the efforts of the Drowning Prevention Coalition members. It is also an exciting time in the history of the DPCA as we embark on several new projects that we hope will save the lives of Arizona’s families.” said DPCA President Lori Schmidt. “This fundraising event with the help of Sarah Anne Events will make a tremendous impact!”
MLB super stars, Hollywood celebrities, sponsors and local Arizona icons will come together to raise money to benefit the DPCA, a community based organization dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of water safety and drowning prevention.
With the help of the Turnbow Foundation, money that is raised will also go towards scholarships that will be offered for families and children to attend swim lesson school to help Arizona’s youth become educated of swim safety.
The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting the game of baseball, raising money for charity, and inspiring and educating youth through positive sport images while protecting the dignity of the game through former players.
MLB legends Ferguson Jenkins, Reggie Sanders, Tony Phillips, Russ Ortiz, Mike Remlinger, Jay Bell, as well as Miss Arizona Katy Bulkley and NFL star Seth Joyner are just a few of the celebrities that will donate their time to help raise funds that are needed for water safety.
