Wii Bowl-A-Thon
Photo-A-Day #1453

Tonight I did my Virtual Bowl-A-Thon on the Wii. I bowled two games in an effort to raise money for the Niemann-Pick Children’s Fund. Dina Riccobono of Market Leverage encouraged me to do this since I could not make it to the event that they held down in Florida. So, I was there in spirit. I did pretty well too. You can watch the recorded video from Stickcam, which shows the games as they are played.

I also created a video after and during the bowling.

It was fun, I wish that there were people in the chat room that I could talk to between each frame or each game but that is okay. What I really hope is that people will sponsor me at $0.10 a pin per game. I bowled a 181 in Game 1 and a 191 in Game 2. It must have been something about bowling for charity because that was the best I’d bowled in a long time and I even made (Pro) in Wii Bowling after Game 1. So if you’d like to donate $18.10 for Game one or $19.10 for Game two or even $37.20 for the whole night then please go directly to The Niemann-Pick Children’s Fund Donation page. (You could round things up :-) I won’t tell :-) )

The other part of this was that I sent down some hats and some calendars to give as door prizes to the people who participated. I even sponsored Tim Jones on Team Affiliate Summit. I hope that he did well. His team came in second overall so that is great to hear.

Here are a couple more of the photos I took using the intervalometer while I bowled.

I can’t believe how trim I look in this shot, camera angles I guess.

I thought the White Man Overbite was just for dancing.

    Hey Drew- Just got back from the event and it was amazing! Sorry I couldn’t catch your UStream cast, we had a…unsteady (at best) wireless connection. Glad you did well, I’ll check out the videos tomorrow morning!

  2. Ben this is incredible! We are humbled by your kind actions.

    Dina,
    I can’t wait to hear all about the event. Please let me know the amount of my total donation so I can send it in. I had fun, I’d probably do things a little differently next time, I need more cameras.

    Thanks you Michael,
    I see that you are a dad who would do anything for his kids. I hope that I have the kind of strength that you and your wife have in the face of adversity. Keep Strong and I was only more than happy to do something.
