Actor Jason Gedrick will host a charity bowling night with a difference on Saturday, February 13.
In association with the Carol M. Baldwin Cancer Research Fund, celebrities such as Daniel and Stephen Baldwin, Joe Mantegna, Gilles Marini and others will converge on the Pinz Bowling Center on Ventura Blvd for a night of “Pajama bowling”.
Wearing nothing but their PJ’s and nighties, the guests will spend the night bowling after dark to benefit charity. The Carol M. Baldwin Cancer Research Fund was set up by the Baldwin brothers after their mother after she underwent a double mastectomy in 1996. The 70-year-old turned her tragedy into courage to assist other women who are affected by breast cancer, and the Fund, which has raised over $2.6 million since its inception, donates money to researchers investigating the causes, prevention, and treatment of the disease. Both William Baldwin and his brother, Alec Baldwin, sit on the board of the Fund.
From the charity’s website: "The Baldwin family firmly believes that the key to finding a cure for breast cancer can be found by providing the funding necessary to allow researchers to learn more about this disease.
“To date, there have been many significant advances in the methods of detection and treatments for breast cancer, yet many women continue to loose their battle for life every year as they succumb to the devastating effects of this disease. Our mission is to find a cure – nothing less.
“The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund is committed to battling breast cancer by supporting both new and established researchers. To date, the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund has awarded more than 57 research grants totaling in excess of $3 million to medical research.”
