Wilson to host charity bowling event Thursday

OAKLAND -- Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson will host the fifth annual "Throw Strikes" bowling tournament at Bowlmor Anaheim from 6 to 10 p.m. PT during his team's off-day on Thursday, with proceeds benefiting patients at the Hematology Clinic of CHOC Children's and The Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Festivities will include food, drink, prizes for top bowlers and a raffle. A $50 donation allows entry to the event and includes one game of bowling and a shoe rental. Tickets are available on Wilson's website, leftylefty.com, and at the door on the night of the event.

Wilson's Children's Charities, which is organizing the event, began in 2006 and "seeks to raise funds, awareness and most importantly youth participation in community service and charitable giving," according to a press release.
