BRIDGEMEN "Boo!" Bowl!

Love playing with big balls?? (We *know* you do!) Join your host Alvin for BRIDGEMEN’s Halloween themed bowling event to benefit UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. This event is the official kick off to our annual holiday toy drive which provides HIV-positive youth, ages 1 month – 21 years old, with toys and necessities to make their holiday this December a little brighter.

Please bring an unwrapped toy or gift for one of these children and, in exchange, you get free admission to play with the big balls! (However, no one will be turned away for lack of funds).

We encourage y'all to be generous AND festive alike, by dressing in your All Hallow's Eve finest. We’ll have prizes for "Most Creative," “Most Gay,” and -- our personal favorite -- “Hottest Mess” costumes!

Come join us for fun, food, bowling, and prizes as we celebrate doing something fun for ourselves while giving back to our community!

      pronounced Hey-zues. I only saw Jesus when I had wings of clothespins ripped off my body in 1994. LOL

    Hello, due to popular demand, we've opened up a couple of more spots, so it is still not to late to join us, or if you know someone who still wants to join have them RSVP on meet-up. I can't wait to see everyone tomorrow, and thank you so much for helping us out for this worthy cause. Let's have some fun!! Go Giants!!

    Hi Y'all, It was great seeing everyone and seeing new faces last night at our monthly meet-up. Yay!! We only have a couple of more days before our very first bowling event & we still have more spots open to fill. We’re putting this event as a way to give back to our community….Children’s HIV/Aids Treatment Center at the UCSF Benioff Hospital. Most of these children are from either low income, come from foster homes, or just need additional support. Please bring any donation - ($15-20) of an un-wrapped toy, gift card, or whatever you feel you can give or bring. We understand that not everyone can give, but if you can that would be awesome!!
