Have fun for a good cause at the 10th annual Bowling for Bears on Sunday, Dec. 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cherry Hill Playdrome.

Over the past nine holiday seasons, Bowling for Bears has raised more than $120,000, making it possible to provide over 15,000 children in need with Build-A-Bear teddy bears as holiday gifts. All of the proceeds of the event will be used to purchase teddy bears as holiday gifts for local children in need, in hospitals, shelters, foster homes, and other organizations that care for children.

Bowling and food are free and the first 150 people also receive a free t-shirt. There will be a silent auction at the event. The minimum donation per bowler is $8.
