AKRON, Ohio – November 1, 2009 – Akron-native and nationally-known DJ, DJ Mr. King (Steve King) and Tha Takeover Productions along with Ren1010 Sports will host the 2nd Annual “Strikes For Hunger” Charity Bowling Outing Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at AMF Riviera Lanes located at 20 South Miller Road in Akron, Ohio from 5 pm until 1 am
Last year, through the "Strikes for Hunger" campaign, Tha Takeover Productions raised more than $1,000 in food and donations for ACCESS Inc. Battered Women's Shelter in Akron.
This year, Shelter Care and Safe Landing Shelter will benefit from the funds raised at the bowling event. Shelter Care Executive Director Wes Fair said donations during the holiday seasons are always useful to the children and families of their organization.
“This is the time of year when Shelter Care and Safe Landing really depends on and appreciates the outpouring of charity from our community,” said Fair. “Donations of food, clothing, and other resources go a long way in restoring hope and faith in the power to overcome the many obstacles faced by the youth and families we serve”
The event, which will also feature a live DJ as well as billiards and other games, will be a two-part outing with children ages 5-18 bowling in the first session from 5-8pm. The second session will be held for adults 21 and older and will begin at 9pm. Admission for the children session is $10 ($8 with a donation of five canned goods or non-perishable items). Admission for the adult session is $20 ($15 with a donation of five canned goods or non perishable items). All admission includes unlimited bowling and shoe rental for the entire session.
