It was all fun and games for a good cause at the annual JBowl Charity event on Monday, November 12, 2012. Several current and former players from the San Diego Chargers took to the bowling lanes to raise money and awareness for the Jammer Family Foundation and the Pro Player Foundation.
Veteran Chargers players Quentin Jammer, Jacques Cesaire and Darren Bennett hosted the event at Kearny Mesa Bowl in San Diego. Several current San Diego Chargers players also came out to support the cause, such as Seyi Ajirotutu, Curtis Brinkley, Antoine Cason, Antonio Garay, Quentin Jammer, Corey Liuget, Ryan Mathews, Nick Novak, Kendall Reyes, Mike Scifres, Takeo Spikes, Darrell Stuckey, Vincent Brown and Atari Bigby. Robert Griffith, Hank Bauer, David Binn and Jamal Williams also showed up to support Quentin, Jacques and Darren at JBowl.
The eldest son of 2012 Charger’s Hall of Fame inductee, Darren Bennett, Will, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Pro Player Foundation created Will’s Special Team to raise money and awareness to put an end to this disease. The Jammer Family Foundation supports foster children at San Pasqual Academy, a first in the nation residential educational campus for foster children. JBowl also hosted families from Rady Children’s Hospital so they could get away for an evening and share a special night with the Chargers.
Guests were treated to culinary creations from Asti Ristorante, Daisy’s Cajun Kitchen, Sushi Lounge Poway and Encinitas, House of Blues, Rama, Osteria Panenvino,and Nothing Bundt Cakes. D’Lush, Vitamin Water and ONEHOPE Wine provided beverages for the bowlers. Sponsors from around San Diego also donated some sweet swag for both the JBowl live and silent auctions. Mad Catz donated several items, including limited edition powder blue and gold F.R.E.Q. headsets.
