Throw strikes to ‘Knock Down Hunger’


Channel your inner Lebowski, minus the bath robe and White Russian, and get on down to Big Al’s, 1900 N. Eagle Road, Meridian, for the “Knock Down Hunger” event from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6.

The family-friendly night is a benefit for the Meridian Food Bank, and features bowling, a buffet pizza dinner, live auction and raffle items.

Tickets are $30 per person (six-person teams), or get in on the $40 VIP for some sweet cosmic bowling action and a one-hour arcade pass.

Knowing that you are helping to fill some bellies with food is just the incentive you need to wear someone else’s shoes for a few hours. Go to for tickets.
