The 2nd Annual BOWL 4 RONNIE Bowling Party, benefiting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund (www.diocancerfund.org), will take place on Friday, November 4, 2016 at the Pinz Bowling Center in Studio City, California. The event, hosted by VH-1's Eddie Trunk, will include a celebrity bowling tournament, a raffle and a special live auction.

The event kicks off at 6:30PM with open bowling and a VIP pre-party for lane sponsors, celebrities and their guests. BOWL 4 RONNIE participants can anticipate an evening of fun, food, and, of course, bowling with rockers and celebrities competing for trophies in the name of raising funds and awareness for the Dio Cancer Fund.

In addition to emceeing duties, Eddie Trunk, host on Sirius XM's "Volume" and VH-1's That Metal Show, will captain his own bowling team with guitarist John 5 (Rob Zombie) among those joining him in the Celebrity Bowling competition. Other rockers expected to attend include Bjorn Englen (Dio Disciples/Tony MacAlpine/ Yngwie Malmsteen), Chris Broderick (Megadeth/Act of Defiance), Eddie Money, Chris Hager (Rough Cutt), Marty O'Brien (Lita Ford), Mick Sweda (Bullet Boys), Tim "Ripper" Owens (Dio Disciples/Judas Priest), David "Rock" Feinstein (Elf/The Rods), Jeff Scott Soto (Kryst The Conqueror/Yngwie Malmsteen), Chas West (Lynch Mob/Foreigner/ Bonham), Joe Retta (Dio Disciples/Sweet), Marc Ferrari (Keel), Robert Sarzo (Hurricane), Rudy Sarzo (Dio/Quiet Riot/Whitesnake), Scott Warren (Dio /Warrant), Craig Goldy and Simon Wright (Dio/AC/DC), Howie Simon (Nelson, Alcatraz), singer Ann Boleyn (Hellion), singer Sonia Harley, Joey Vera (Armored Saint), Roy Mayorga (Stone Sour), Christian Martucci (Stone Sour), Michael Spencer (Flotsam and Jetsam), guitarist Monte Pittman and actor/musician Sean McNabb (Lynch Mob/Quiet Riot/Dokken), with more names still being added.

There will a live auction that will include music memorabilia and a 6-string Jackson guitar donated by Chris Broderick of ACT OF DEFIANCE, who will be in attendance, stage played while on tour with MEGADETH in 2012 (as well as autographed photos of Chris playing that guitar). Among the raffle prizes will be a specially-designed bowling ball and a bowling pin featuring the BOWL 4 RONNIE artwork, each accompanied by a Bowling Party donated by host venue Pinz Bowling Center.

100% of the net proceeds from the BOWL 4 RONNIE will go to the Dio Cancer Fund (www.diocancerfund.org). Most recently, the Dio Cancer Fund presented a check for $25,000 to Dr. David Wong, Director of the Dental Research Institute at the University of California Los Angeles, to further his research into saliva testing for the early detection of cancer. Dr. Wong believes this simple, non-invasive test will be available for medical use within the next three years.

Individual tickets and lane sponsorships are now on sale, and participants are encouraged to gather friends, family and co-workers for the ultimate bowling team. The Pinz Bowling Center is located at 12655 Ventura Blvd in Studio City, California.

  • WHO: The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund
  • WHAT: BOWL 4 RONNIE Celebrity Charity Bowling Tournament
  • WHERE: Pinz Bowling Center, 12655 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, California
  • WHEN: Friday, November 4, 2016 - 6:30-11:00pm/VIP Pre-Party 6:30-8:30pm
  • WHY: To raise funds for cancer research
The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund was formed in memory of the legendary rock singer Ronnie James Dio, who lost his life to gastric cancer in 2010. A privately funded 501(c)(3) charity organization dedicated to cancer prevention, research and education, the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund has already raised over $1 million in its short history. Monies raised have been committed to the cancer research work of the T. J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research, the gastric cancer research unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated for gastric cancer during the last six months of his life, and other cancer research projects. The recent passing of several high profile musicians to cancer has served to reinforce the commitment of the Dio Cancer Fund to support research and education that furthers early detection, prevention and treatment of prostate, colon and gastric cancers.
