Shofar Magazine held it's First Annual Strike Out Violence -Charity Bowling Tournament featuring National recording artist Isaac Carree.
Saturday afternoon, June 8th, King Pins Bowling Center in Jacksonville, Florida was full of action when fun-loving bowlers gathered for the benefit of DIP Foundation. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides domestic violence education, awareness programs and events for men women, and children.
Teams were assembled from various community and national supporters. "I had fun bowling, it makes me feel like a kid again," says Carree who proudly supports "Strike Out Violence." It's never a situation where you should be bullied or bully or put your hands on someone. There's always a better way to handle things. There are alot of people incarcerated because they snapped. They simply had a bad moment, or a bad situation. Always think before you react. Make sure you keep God in the center of your life so He can fight your battles for you, he encourages.
Trophies were awarded to the highest and lowest scoring bowler, most strikes, teen with highest score, & best average. Medals were also awarded for similiar categories.
The major sponsors/ In-kind donors of the event were King Pins Bowling Center, Jacksonville Jaguars, Beautiful Hair, Athlete's Foot, Destiny Creations, V1015, FMNLIVE Productions, MAC-Cosmetics, & Door Six Entertainment.
This event’s proceeds will be used to further the DIP Foundation's efforts in helping empowering victims and their families break the cycle of domestic violence.
