Minnesota Twins to roll cancer in the gutter

February 15, 2013
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

The Minnesota Twins, in partnership with signature charity Lee Memorial Health System Foundation, will pair up to deliver an outstanding afternoon of bowling and fun on Sunday, Feb. 17 at Gator Lanes located at 7500 Crystal Drive in Fort Myers.

Fans will have the opportunity to bowl alongside their favorite Twins players and compete for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes. Prior year participants have included fan favorites Joe Mauer, Drew Butera, Brian Duensing, Liam Hendriks and 2010 A.L. Manager of The Year Ron Gardenhire.

Proceeds support programs and treatments at Lee Memorial Health System's Regional Cancer Center located at the corner of Colonial Blvd. and I-75 in Fort Myers.

The event pairs teams of three guests with a Minnesota Twins player or staff member serving as the fourth on the team. Only 72 spots will be fielded and slots sell-out quickly each year.

The afternoon will also include silent and live auctions with a highlight package of an opportunity to meet Miranda Lambert during her concert visit to Southwest Florida, drawings and buffet.

To play, guests can purchase a team of three for $350, or enter as a single player for $150. For a $50 donation, guests can also support the event by attending as an observer (non-bowler) and still enjoy the buffet and the chance to bid on the auction items. Additional sponsorship levels with priority team pairing are also available.

For more information or to register a team, go to or call the Lee Memorial Health System Foundation office at 343-6950.
