Bowling for Birthdays helps homeless and foster youth feel like they matter

Help a kid smile on their birthday during a bowling party that gives back

For seven years, the Culver City-based nonprofit Cause for Celebration has been raising funds to throw birthday parties for homeless and foster youth who’d otherwise miss out on this basic childhood experience of love, recognition and self-worth.

Keep the good times going this Sunday, when Cause for Celebration hosts its fundraising Bowling for Birthdays party at Bowlmor Santa Monica. With full participation, the team bowling event is expected to fund as many as 60 birthday parties that will help kids in need realize they are valued and deserve to be celebrated.
