This event might Bowl you over

Long-time "Sean's Space" reader Lisa asked me to pass along an announcement about a fund-raiser this weekend that will help a local lil' guy and might nab you some sweet swag!
Want to win one of "American Idol" champ Taylor Hicks' harmonicas, like the one he's using in this video from his Poughkeepsie show in 2007? What about some more autographed prizes, all to benefit a 6-year-old boy in need?

Then stop bythe Holiday Bowl on Route 9 in Wappingers Falls this Saturday for a bowl-a-thon and raffle to help Frankie Flora, who sustained severe facial injuries in a recent pitbull attack. (Check out more about Frankie and his progress at the "Frankie's Fund" Web site.) The fund-raiser will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Two hours of bowling, pizza and soda will be just $13, with proceeds going to Frankie's fund.

More than just bowling, the event will also host a raffle to win a slew of prizes, including a drum skin signed by 3 Doors Down lead singer Brad Arnold (seen here) and the rest of the band. Also up for grabs will be an original photograph by "America's Next Top Model" judge/photog Nigel Barker; an autographed poster from Alice Cooper; and an signed CD from Stephanie Powers of the '80s TV show "Hart to Hart."

And because I know that Taylor Hicks' fans frequent "Sean's Space," I saved the best for last: There will be two of Taylor's harmonicas and photos signed by the "Idol" Season 5 champ raffled off to benefit Frankie!

Lisa says more prizes, including local gift cards, are coming in daily. Raffle tickets will cost just 50¢, and you can buy as many as you want.

For even more information, you can e-mail Lisa and as always, tell her Sean sent ya!
