ImpACTA Kids Foundation: Celebrity Bowling Charity Fundraiser
Indians manager Manny Acta is gearing up for the second annual Celebrity Bowling Charity Fundraiser that will take place August 23rd from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Corner Alley.
All fans are invited to purchase tickets to the event, which is run by Cleveland Indians Charities and the ImpACTA Kids Foundation.
Acta has invited the entire Cleveland Indians team as well as the New York Yankees team, which will be in town to face the Tribe.
“We’re very happy to be able to have our second event. I hope we’re able to get support because it goes to a very good cause. Our players have been very supportive of it, and they’re going to be supportive of it again,” Acta said. “We’re going to have some fun. It’s a way for us to pay back our fans.”
Individual tickets can be purchased for $125.00, giving fans access to the celebrity bowling area, photograph and signing opportunities, the chance to win Bowl-with-Celebrity tickets, access to auction and raffle, fan giveaways, and dinner and two drink tickets.
Group VIP Sponsorship & Bowl with Celebrities offers a package of five tickets with exclusive access to the player VIP area for $5,000.00 ($1,000 per person). Fans purchasing this package also receive a special red carpet photograph with a celebrity, five free raffle tickets, dinner and open bar, a VIP gift bag, and complimentary VIP parking.
All proceeds will benefit Cleveland Indians Charities, ImpACTA Kids Foundation (see photos above), and Mission Possible.
Acta said he encourages fans to support those in need in the Cleveland area and in the Dominican Republic.
“Support the event, not only because it’s a great cause, but also because it’s an opportunity to see our players up-close and be able to chat with some of them and take pictures,” he said. “Also, because helping needy kids is very important in our lives. Baseball is our job, our passion, but it’s not everything we’re all about. Helping kids is a big part of our lives.”
