The fifth annual Mike Conley Bowl 'n Bash benefitting the Methodist Healthcare Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center is scheduled for Saturday (Sept. 28) from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Billy Hardwick's All Star Lanes at 1576 S. White Station Rd.
"We hope the community will join the fight against sickle cell by participating in this fundraising event," said Conley, the Grizzlies starting point guard. "This is a fun way to bring awareness to a very serious disease."
In addition to Conley, his new teammate, Mike Miller, and other basketball stars and coaches will be dropping by to help raise money for the cause.
The following team registrations are available:
Individual – $125 (includes event admission and t-shirt);
Bowling team (four bowlers per team) – $500 (includes four autographed 8 x 10 photos of Mike Conley, four shirts, free food at the event and four pre-season tickets).
Awards will be given for the best individual and team bowlers.
For the second consecutive year, City Auto is the presenting sponsor among several other corporate and community sponsors.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Methodist Healthcare Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, which provides a preventive outpatient clinic for adults and Memphis' first dedicated emergency infusion unit. The Center is focused on delivering treatment advance through on-site research.
