Event host Eddie Trunk will once again captain a team of celebrity bowlers. A place on Eddie Trunk's team will be auctioned off on eBay in the coming weeks, and additional participants will be announced shortly.

The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with open bowling and a VIP pre-party for lane sponsors, celebrities and their guests. "Bowl For Ronnie" attendees can anticipate an evening of fun, food, and, of course, bowling with rockers and celebrities competing for trophies in the name of raising funds and awareness for the Dio Cancer Fund. Among the raffle prizes will be a specially-designed bowling ball and pin featuring the "Bowl For Ronnie" artwork along with a PINZ bowling party as well as many other items.

100% of the net proceeds from the "Bowl For Ronnie" will go to the Dio Cancer Fund.

Individual tickets and lane sponsorships are now on sale, and participants are encouraged to gather friends, family and co-workers for the ultimate bowling team.

The Pinz Bowling Center is located at 12655 Ventura Blvd in Studio City, California.
