Tony Dorsett To Headline ALS Celebrity Bowling Classic At Main Event GrapevineDallas legend Tony Dorsett is hosting the inaugural ALS Celebrity Bowling Classic at Main Event Entertainment in Grapevine next Thursday, Aug. 24.

Dorsett will be joined at the event by fellow Pro Football Hall of Famer Randy White, 5-time Super Bowl Champion Charles Haley, 2004 Olympic Champion Carly Patterson, Texas Rangers Hall of Famer Michael Young, former Dallas Mavericks star Derek Harper and others.

Main Event has teamed up with the ALS Association Texas Chapter and the Bowling Proprietors Association of America to host a fun night full of bowling, laser tag, games, food and drinks. PBA and PWBA pros Chris and Lynda Barnes will put on a trick-shot exhibition and help the amateur participants pick up a strike or spare in return for additional donations to the charity.

“I’m looking forward to being a part of this fun and important fundraiser for a great organization like the ALS Association and really appreciate Main Event for helping me host this,” said Dorsett.
