(Adrenaline) The second annual Bowl 4 Ronnie Bowling Party, which benefits the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, has been announced. We were sent the following details:

The event will take place on Friday, November 4, 2016 at the Pinz Bowling Center in Studio City, California. The event will include a celebrity bowling tournament, a raffle drawing and a special live auction. The inaugural Dio Cancer Fund Bowling Party, held in May 2015 as part of the commemoration of the 5th anniversary of the passing of rock legend Ronnie James Dio, contributed to raising $155,000 for the cancer charity from that weekend's events.

Bowl 4 Ronnie participants 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 featuring the BOWL 4 RONNIE artwork .

"Last year was a blast, and we totally sold out the place," says Wendy Dio, co-founder/president of the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund. "We hope everyone will come again this year to have some fun and raise money for a good cause."

100% of the net proceeds from the BOWL 4 RONNIE will go to the Dio Cancer Fund. Most recently, the Dio Cancer Fund presented a check for $25,000 to Dr. David Wong, Director of the Dental Research Institute at the University of California Los Angeles, to further his research into saliva testing for the early detection of cancer. Dr. Wong believes this simple, non-invasive test will be available for medical use within the next three years. Check out the charity's official website here.
