Cleveland (PRWEB) March 28, 2008
Cleveland Browns' defensive tackle Shaun Smith has made a career of knocking down quarterbacks. But on April 12th, Smith will try his hand at knocking down another target - or ten - at the inaugural Shaun Smith's '91 Ways' Foundation Celebrity Bowling Tournament 2008, at the Corner Alley in Cleveland.
The four-year NFL veteran will be joined by other members of the Cleveland Browns, as well as other celebrity guests, in the tournament benefiting Smith's '91 Ways' Foundation, assisting youth in Cleveland and in Smith's hometown of Brooklyn, NY. Having just completed his first season with the Browns, where he posted career-highs in sacks and tackles, Smith is eager to make a difference in his new home.
"Cleveland has been wonderful to my family and has given me the opportunity to grow as a football player and to serve an amazing community," Smith said. "I hope this tournament will have a tremendous impact and with the help of our sponsors and the Corner Alley, I believe it will be a huge success."
The Shaun Smith's '91 Ways' Foundation Celebrity Bowling Tournament will take place Saturday, April 12th, at the Corner Alley, located at 402 Euclid Ave., in Cleveland, beginning at 2:30 p.m. Aspiring bowlers can register their teams of five at http://www.shaun-smith.com. Each team will have the opportunity to play with two celebrities, as well as receive five passes to a VIP reception prior to the tournament. The event is open to the public with general admission tickets available at http://www.ticketweb.com. A silent auction featuring sports memorabilia and a new car will be held during the event with proceeds benefiting the '91 Ways' Foundation. Sponsorships for the event are still available. Organizations interested in sponsoring a lane, or in other opportunities can get more information by calling 937-837-5200.
