Yesterday, we had the honor of attending M.U.R.A.L.’s Celebrity Bowling Tournament at Kings Bowl to raise money & awareness for M.U.R.A.L.’s Food Justice Programs. What a fun night as families engaged in a little bowling & socializing.
Lupe Fiasco & Chicago Blackhawks’ Defenseman, Niklas Hjalmarsson did a little bowling themselves as well as took a few pictures & mingled with everyone. They each were presented with two official Kings Bowl’s bowl pins that they signed. Chicago PD’s Marina Squerciati & WGCI’s own Kyle Santillian was also in attendance mingling & taking pictures as well.
After a few friendly games & everyone indulged in some samplers provided by Kings Bowl, M.U.R.A.L.’s Board Chairman, Cyrus & Eli introduced themselves & thanked everyone for coming out to support such a great cause. They then introduced Co-Founder, Ayesha Jaco who spoke on the history of M.U.R.A.L & it’s Food Justice Programs as well as what they’ve accomplished thus far. One of their proudest accomplishments is partnering with varies businesses, grocers & food vendors to feed hundreds of families. Ayesha also spoke about the purpose of the Bowling Tournament which was to raise money for the Food Justice Programs which led to Cyrus & Eli starting the auction. The auction consisted of a signed Chicago Blackhawks’ Jonathan Toews jersey, an exclusive autographed picture of Lupe Fiasco captured by Jason Peterson & a pair of tickets to Lupe’s concert tonight at the House of Blues.
After a successful auction, Cyrus & Eli thanked the crowd once again & everyone went back to bowling & socializing.
