The Ball O’ Fire (BOF) Celebrity Bowling Tournament is a festive, family-friendly private party in a bowling alley, where 200 people rub shoulders with about 30 TV and film industry personalities and retired professional athletes, and together we raise over $30,000 in donations for Foothill AIDS Project.
Everyone can help! You can register as an individual bowler and FAP will assign you to a team. Or you can register a few friends and bowl together as a team. A couple of celebrities will be assigned to every team. Don’t want to bowl? Purchase one or more of the limited number of general admission tickets reserved for fans and fan clubs.
On event day, you will enjoy lunch from BJ’s Restaurant, bowl three games with at least one celebrity, vie for cool raffle prizes, or score big in the silent auction!
Can Anyone Bowl?
Yes, all are welcome! Don’t bowl well? No problem! It’s your presence at the BOF that’s important, not how well you bowl. And if you’re a top-notch, championship bowler, you’re in luck: you can compete for several cool bowling trophies just for you!
How Does Bowling Help?
In exchange for their time and friendship, our kind celebrities ask everyone attending the event—individuals and teams—to contribute a donation to Foothill AIDS Project, and to invite friends and family to donate, too. After you register, every bowler will gain access to a website that will make collecting your pledges as easy as falling off a bowling ball!
It’s Easy & Important!
Presented by AIDS Healthcare Foundation and BJ’s Restaurants, the 2016 BOF Celebrity Bowling Tournament will help Foothill AIDS Project serve over 1000 women, men, children and families touched by HIV epidemic across the Inland Empire in 2016.
Have you ever wondered if there’s something simple, yet meaningful, you could do to stop HIV in the Inland Empire? Well, here’s your chance! Bowling for FAP!
CJ Valleroy got the acting bug after watching Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and made his feature film debut in Unbroken directed by Angelina Jolie. When not working on his television, film or dancing during L.A. Sparks halftime shows, he knits caps for cancer patients through Ronald McDonald House. FAP is excited to welcome him to his first Balls o’ Fire Event!
Why I’m Bowling for FAP
My generation’s potential in so many fields is incredible to behold, but in one area we must not fall short of this potential: We could be the generation that ends HIV. That’s why I volunteer, and that’s why I hope others will join me.

Why I’m Bowling for FAP
First, it’s a great event! I love laughing and bowling with all of my FAP friends and making new friends. With whatever celebrity I may have, I want people to know the AIDS epidemic is not over. This epidemic is non-discriminating. It doesn’t care about your age, whether you’re male or female, your ethnic background, or who you love. It is an equal opportunity infection. We need to educate and inform everyone we can. Help us do that! C’mon and bowl!

Note: Sudden and unforeseen changes to production schedules and contractual obligations may regrettably prevent a celebrity from attending the 2015 BOF at the final hour. Celebrities do their utmost to juggle their work life and charitable efforts, and yet when conflicts arise, FAP releases them from any obligation, hoping they will bowl with us next year! FAP regrets any inconvenience such absences may cause our donors and friends.
