About “Strikes For A Cause”Celebrity Bowling Tournament and the Chris Singleton Fund
“Strikes For A Cause” is a celebrity bowling tournament that is sponsored and organized by the Chris Singleton Fund. The Chris Singleton Fund was established by Chris Singleton, a former Major League Baseball player and current television and radio analyst on ESPN. The initiative raises awareness and funds for Three Dimensional Life, a Christian-based residential facility designed to help 14-20 year old teens and young men who struggle with destructive behavior and addiction as well as FIFTEEN, a program carrying students through a three-year program during which they learn social responsibility, self-awareness, leadership and life skills.
XBowling is a social mobile application that offers bowlers an opportunity to engage in new types of gaming experiences at bowling centers around the world. Players can compete against each other in live Head to Head Challenges while bowling in the same center or different centers around the country and the world. They can also compete against games previously bowled and “posted” on the XBowling network. Players can also enter “solo” Challenges, such as XBowl Mania, Lotto Bowl, or Beat Your Average, competing to achieve a certain game or frame result. Players can win points every time they play through gameplay, skill, and social interactions that allow them to build their XBowling leaderboard status and redeem their accumulated points for great merchandise and sports gear through the app or the web. Players can also use the XBowling platform to engage with celebrities through the VIB (“Very Important Bowler”) section of the App, bowling in special Challenges for the right to participate in live celebrity events, such as celebrity bowling tournaments, or for the right to attend unique athletic and sporting events.
Over the last two years, the XBowling platform has recorded close to 1 billion balls thrown at XBowling-enabled centers. XBowling is currently available on Apple IoS and Google Android devices, via free downloads from the App Store and Google Play.
Bowling is the largest recreational sport in the world with over 130 million annual participants globally. In the US alone, 70 million people bowl at least once a year, 10 million people bowl at least once a month, and millions of people bowl 7 million games each day.
