Tony Dorsett To Headline ALS Celebrity Bowling Classic At Main Event
Dallas legend Tony Dorsett is hosting the inaugural ALS Celebrity Bowling Classic at Main Event Entertainment in Grapevine next Thursday, Aug. 24.
Dorsett will be joined at the event by fellow Pro Football Hall of Famer Randy White, 5-time Super Bowl Champion Charles Haley, 2004 Olympic Champion Carly Patterson, Texas Rangers Hall of Famer Michael Young, former Dallas Mavericks star Derek Harper and others.
Main Event has teamed up with the ALS Association Texas Chapter and the Bowling Proprietors Association of America to host a fun night full of bowling, laser tag, games, food and drinks. PBA and PWBA pros Chris and Lynda Barnes will put on a trick-shot exhibition and help the amateur participants pick up a strike or spare in return for additional donations to the charity.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of this fun and important fundraiser for a great organization like the ALS Association and really appreciate Main Event for helping me host this,” said Dorsett.
Lane sponsorships and individual tickets for the event are now on sale at www.alsbowlingclassic.com. Three different options are available:
- Lane Sponsorship ($1,000; for up to 6 bowlers) – includes three hours of bowling, unlimited laser tag, arcade games and billiards, food and non-alcoholic beverages. Also includes 12 alcoholic drink tickets, swag bags and sponsor signage on the lane. (Only 5 lanes left!)

100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the ALS Association, the only national not-for-profit organization completely dedicated to fighting ALS. The ALS Association and the Texas Chapter operate under a shared mission to discover treatments and a cure for ALS and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
“We are extremely proud to host this ALS fundraiser at the newly remodeled center in Grapevine,” said Charlie Keegan, CEO of Main Event Entertainment. “It’s going to be a great time for a great cause, and a chance to meet some legendary athletes in a fun, intimate setting.”
The ALS Celebrity Bowling Classic begins at 6 p.m. and will take place at the Main Event center located at 407 W. State Hwy 114 in Grapevine, Texas.
“ALS touches the lives of so many people, so BPAA is honored to support the fundraising efforts of the ALS Association along with our partners at Main Event,” said Frank DeSocio, BPAA Executive Director.
ALS heroes Tony Liscio (former Cowboys player) and Clint Townsend will also be honored during the event.
