The Inaugural George Springer All-Star Bowling Benefit will be held Monday, July 20, 2015 from 7 to 10 p.m. at Lucky Strike Houston, located at 1201 San Jacinto St., Houston 77002.
The Bowling Benefit is hosted by George Springer, a Houston Astros outfielder and Sports Illustrated cover athlete, and is a fundraiser to support financial aid for young people who stutter to attend Camp SAY. Guests are invited to attend alongside master of ceremonies Bob Allen of KHOU, members of the Houston Astros, baseball legend “Louisiana Lightning” Ron Guidry, and other athletes and celebrities for a fun and memorable evening of bowling and entertainment.
The George Springer All-Star Bowling Benefit serves as a fundraiser for The George Springer Kids Fund, which was established to offer young people of all socioeconomic backgrounds financial aid assistance and access to Camp SAY.
Springer, a person who stutters, is the national spokesperson for Camp SAY which is a program of SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that offers comprehensive and innovative programs that address the physical, social and emotional impact of stuttering. SAY offers Camp SAY; SAY after-school and weekend programs; Speech Therapy, and support groups.
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception followed by bowling with celebrity lane captains, open bar and dinner. The event will also feature sport themed items, experiences, and memorabilia in a silent auction. All proceeds from the event and silent auction will help send kids and teens to Camp SAY.
It’s called the “Lost Afternoon” for obvious reasons: once you get together with your mates in such an atmosphere, the typical 90-minute luncheon turns into three hours – or more – so you might as well stick around and fully enjoy the experience! The extended time also provides the opportunity to hear from multiple speakers, watch some great action on the big screens, and still have plenty of time to “network.” It’s not unusual for guests to even book rooms or suites in the host hotel to continue well into the evening, especially those traveling from out-of-town.
This year’s keynote speaker is South African referee Andre Watson, the only referee to have officiated in two World Cups.

My Trendy Place will be hosting their Annual fashion show! This year we will be raising money to help people dealing with Alopecia.
Alopecia Areata is a highly unpredictable autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. So many aspects of alopecia areata are beyond our control, but our ability to raise money to find a cure is not one of them.
We will be showcasing our newest collections. There will be a raffle drawings, food, drinks and the boutique will be open for you to shop.
Join us for a good cause in a fun way!
