The NFL Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion and the Ex­change Club of Pom­pano Beach re­cently held their eighth an­nual “Car­ing for Kids Bowl­ing Tour­na­ment” at Saw­grass Lanes in Tamarac.

On hand were for­mer NFL play­ers who signed au­to­graphs and Ex­change Club mem­bers who grilled lunch. Other at­ten­dees were staff and res­i­dents of the Broward Chil­dren’s Cen­ter and the Chil­dren’s Heal­ing In­sti­tute, and vol­un­teers from NFL Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion of South Florida.

Ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded a silent auc­tion, a raf­fle for a wine wagon, and a 50/50 draw­ing.

Tro­phies were pre­sented to the best male and fe­male bowlers, the best team, the most en­thu­si­as­tic team, best cos­tumes and low­est score.

The event raised more than $20,000 for lo­cal chil­dren’s char­i­ties. It also got many of the med­i­cally frag­ile chil­dren out to have a fun af­ter­noon of bowl­ing, games and in­ter­ac­tion with for­mer NFL play­ers.
