A Bodacious “Bowling for Boobies” Bash!
Bowling has become a hip sport these days, but never was it hipper than Monday, October 13th at the oh-so-cool Lucky Strike Lanesin Hollywood. This was no ordinary night at the bowling alley. It was the 4 th Annual “Bowling for Boobies” night, hosted by the Busted Foundation.
“Bowling for Boobies” might sound light and funny, but it’s actually for a serious and worthy cause. For the past 4 years, the event has been sponsored to raise awareness and monetary assistance for local women who have breast cancer.
“Like a good bra, our event aims to uplift and support!” said Stephanie LaHart, founder of Busted. And that it did! The outrageous, high-energy social affair drew a great crowd and outpouring of support.
Eight teams of bowlers joined together to have fun and “strike” out against this disease that will affect one of every 8 women. The Busted Foundation awards the funds to one deserving breast cancer victim each year to help with the massive bills caused by the disease and treatment.
Edith Speed was the co-founder and first recipient. She looked radiant on Monday evening, and a bunch of her friends were on hand to bowl and support her. They formed the team, “Nasty Habits,” dressed in amusing priest and nun garb. Other participating teams were “Nippoleon Boobaparte,” “Gutter Girls,” “Total Package,” “Champagne Splits,” “Cult of The Eye,” and “The Spares.”
Playboy’s Holly Madison (Hugh Hefner’s Number 1) and star of E’s “The Girl Next Store” headed up the team called “The Double D’s.”
In addition to the bowling, there were raffles, a silent auction, fun and fabulous T-shirts, and author Pat Davis, who was signing her book, “The Passion Parties Guide to Great Sex.” I took a copy home and spent the night reading about the “Secrets and Techniques to Keep your Relationship Red Hot.”
And speaking of red hot, the “Bowling for Boobies” night brought in over $50,000. All told, this and other “Bowling for Boobies” events have raised almost $100,000 to benefit women fighting breast cancer.
Make sure your company or your friends get your bowling shoes, balls, and boobies ready for next year’s event.
