A Great Night At The Third Annual Jerod Mayo Bowl
Fresh off of his first win of the 2012 NFL season, New England Patriots linebacker Jerord Mayo hosted his third annual bowling tournament to benefit Pitching in for Kids and the Boston Medical Center. The event dubbed the “Mayo Bowl” takes place at the pristine Legacy Place in Dedham at the upscale Kings bowling alley.
A crowd larger than last year and rumored to be 500 people gathered for the great causes. Numerous Patriots players were in attendance including Tom Brady (Gisele was in the house too), Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Vince Wilfork, Logan Mankins, Brandon Spikes, Pat Chung and over two dozen more.
Jerod Mayo teamed up with Pitching in for Kids is a nonprofit organization “dedicated to improving the lives of children across New England.” This was never more evident that when a 23 year-old male and a product of the foster system conveyed his success story from the help he received from Pitching in for Kids and the work done by the Ron Burton Training Village before the tournament got underway. Admirably, Mayo has also sponsored the Boston Medical Center who uniquely provides care for all regardless of financial status.
Fans, sponsors, and players packed in to the cozy alley and enjoyed a great atmosphere. The tasty food options included pizza, mozzarella balls, egg rolls, wings, and chips. Sam Adams also donated more than enough beer for the event. There were raffle tickets being sold and a silent auction going on all evening which included a Tom Brady autographed jersey, a Gronk autographed cleat, a Paul Pierce autographed photo, much Stanley Cup Bruins autographed memorabilia, and much more.
