WHO:     The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund

WHAT:   BOWL FOR RONNIE Celebrity Charity Bowling Tournament

WHERE: Pinz Bowling Center, 12655 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, California

WHEN:   Thursday, November 16, 2023 – 6:30-11:00pm/VIP Pre-Party 6:30-8:30pm

WHY:      To raise funds for cancer research.

 

100% of the net proceeds from the BOWL FOR RONNIE event will go to the Dio Cancer Fund (www.diocancerfund.org). The Pinz Bowling Center is located at 12655 Ventura Blvd in Studio City, California.

The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund was formed in memory of the legendary rock singer Ronnie James Dio, who lost his life to gastric cancer in 2010.  A privately funded 501(c)(3) charity organization dedicated to cancer prevention, research and education, the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund has already raised over $2 million in its history. Monies raised have been committed to the cancer research work of the T. J. Martell Foundation for Cancer, AIDS and Leukemia Research, the gastric cancer research unit of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated for gastric cancer during the last six months of his life, and other cancer research projects. For the past seven years, the Dio Cancer Fund has committed funds to support the research of Dr. David Wong and his team at the UCLA School of Dentistry in developing a simple, non-invasive saliva test for the early detection of cancer, which is in keeping with the Fund’s mission of cancer prevention, research and education.

The acclaimed documentary, “DIO: Dreamers Never Die,” is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray+4K, which debuted at #1 on both the US and UK Music DVD charts during its first week of release. To order the DVD, Blu-Ray+4K or merchandise bundles, visit: https://shop.bandwear.com/dio The film is also streaming on SHOWTIME and on the SHOWTIME app at: https://www.sho.com/titles/3519882/dio-dreamers-never-die
