*Saints Wide Receiver Brandin Cooks to host Strikes For Kids Bowling Event at Fulton Alley Lanes on Tuesday, December 29th *
"Proceeds to benefit the launch of The Worth It Living Foundation"
NEW ORLEANS, LA- Strikes For Kids, a 501 c(3) nonprofit organization that partners more than a hundred NFL players with benefiting youth organizations thru bowling and golf events in communities across the United States will be teaming up with Saints' receiver Brandin Cooks.
On Tuesday, December 29th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Fulton Alley Lanes located at 600 Fulton St, New Orleans, LA 70130. Brandin and teammates will be trading in their football cleats for bowling shoes as he hosts "The AVL Installations Strikes For Kids New Orleans Bowling Classic Presented by The Worth It Living Foundation".
Brandin lost his dad, Worth Cooks, to a heart attack when he was just six years old. He was diagnosed with a heart condition weeks before he died. Like so many other children who lost their parents, it was difficult for him and his brothers to grow up with their parents.
His death may have been preventable had he taken care of himself and a healthier lifestyle. He created the "Worth It" Foundation to raise awareness and garner support for those organizations striving to improve the overall health and wellness for everyone.
The bowling lanes have all been sold, but fans, families and local businesses are invited to come watch the player's bowl, have fun and support Brandins' Foundation. Admission for the event is a $25 donation per spectator and includes food and the silent auction.
Event tickets are available through the web site, www.strikesforkidsneworleans.com or by contacting Joe Allen (559) 241-4412.
