6th Annual Shriners Bowling Fundraiser Palooza
Jerry Weiers has always made it a priority to give back to the community, so when the idea of hosting an annual bowling charity event to raise money for the Shriners Hospital for Children, he was excited for the opportunity.
"When I started the event in 2007, it was my hope that it would be a great event where people could get together and have a little fun, and at the same time raise money for a very important cause." Jerry Weiers Said. "Every year it gets bigger and bigger."

The 6th Annual Shriners Bowling Fundraiser Palooza will take place March 28, 2012 at the Glen Fair Lanes, located at 6110 N. 59th Avenue in Glendale, Az. The event will begin at 5:30 PM.
"The outpouring of support has been amazing." Jerry Weiers Said. "It goes to show that when you are doing work for a good cause, the community always comes together to help out."
Currently, the El Zaribah Shrine located in Phoenix has over 2,000 patients throughout Arizona. The children are seen from four (4) main groups: Orthopedics, Burns, Spinal Cord Injuries and Cleft Lip and palete treatment. They use six different Shrine hospitals because of various specialties and ongoing research.
The local Shriners spend about $250,000 annually to provide this service at no cost to the families of the "Shrine Kids."
