Bowling night took on a special meaning yesterday in Tampa, as more than 20 football greats, guests and fans participated in the fourth annual NFL Super Bowl Celebrity Bowling Classic.
Fans joined teams, each captained by a former pro football player, and everyone bowled to raise money for the NFL Youth Education Town, an initiative that provides education and mentoring services to at-risk youth. The NFL establishes these learning and recreational centers in cities hosting Super Bowls.
“The Super Bowl Celebrity Bowling Classic is a fantastic event and a tremendous amount of fun for both the players and fans who participate,” said former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Lynn Swann, who returned as event spokesperson for the third consecutive year. “Most importantly, the tournament benefits a truly worthy cause, and I am extremely proud to again lend my support.”
