Mealer Charity Bowling Event - Wed. Aug. 20
Just wanted to make sure to post this portion of this morning's Chengelis article so that anyone with the time and inclination can mosey on down to Colonial Lanes next Wednesday to provide a little financial assistance to the Mealer family.
If you're not familiar with Elliott Mealer, or his tragic loss last year, you can read up a bit on the googles: http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071226/NEWS01/712260393
Anyway, here are the details of the event. Please consider attending, or making a donation:
Charity event set
The team will participate in a "Bowling for Brock" charity next Wednesday to raise funds to help ease the medical costs for Brock Mealer , the brother of freshman lineman Elliott Mealer .
The Mealers were involved in a car accident last Christmas Eve as they traveled to church. Mealer's father, David , and Elliott's girlfriend, Hollis Richer were killed. Brock Mealer was paralyzed, and Elliott Mealer suffered a shoulder injury, and likely will be redshirted this season.
bowling and autograph session is at the Colonial Lanes (1950 South
Industrial Highway, Ann Arbor) from 4-6 p.m. Admission is $50 for
adults, $25 for children, and all proceeds will go toward Mealer's
rehabilitation costs at the U-M Medical Center.
