Strikes for Kids plans the sixth annual Orange and Blue Bowling Bash to raise money for the organization’s backpack giveaway program, which provides backpacks filled with school supplies to famlies in need.

Denver Broncos safety Will Parks will be joined by some of his teammates at the event, which takes place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20 at Main Event Entertainment Center, 64 Centennial Blvd., Highlands Ranch.

Checkin and registration begins at 5:30 p.m. and bowling takes place from 6-8 p.m. A silent auction and 50-50 raffle will take place from 7-7:45 p.m.

Registration cost is $200 and includes two hours of bowling and shoe rental for up to six bowlers, a pizza and pitcher of soda, two hours of all-you-can-play arcade game cards, an event shirt and swag bag, a group photo with Will Parks, and raffle and silent auction participation.

In addition to providing 250 backpacks to the Boys and Girls Clubs Denver Broncos branch, Strikes for Kids will invite 75 kids out for an evening of arcade games and food while handing out backpacks.

The Strikes for Kids backpack program, presented by Dollar Days, provided about 2,000 backpacks will with school supplies in 2017 and 3,500 packs in 2018. In 2019, the goal is to provide more than 4,000 backpacks nationwide.

Strikes for Kids is a national charitable organization that organizes bowling, softball and golf events. The organization partners with professional athletes to allow fans to mingle with professional athletes for an afternoon of fun while supporting a charitable cause.

Those interested in sponsorship opportunities can contact Joseph Allen, Strikes for Kids founder, at 559-241-4412 or jallen@strikes4kids.org. To check out past events, or to register your team, go to www.orangeandbluebowlingbash.com.
