Mr. Happy Crack, the famed mascot of The Crack Team, is set to join Cedric the Entertainer and other renowned personalities at Cedric's Celebrity Bowling Benefit. The event is expected to draw celebrities from sports, music and entertainment worlds to Lucky Strike Lanes in St. Louis, MO on Thursday July 27 to raise money for The Cedric The Entertainer Charitable Foundation, Inc. (CTECF)
