San Diego Roundup : Fouts Plans Bowling Meet in El Cajon

The Dan Fouts Celebrity Bowling Tournament to benefit the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at Valley Bowl in El Cajon.

More than 80 celebrities are scheduled to participate in the tournament including Fouts, Charlie Joiner, Rolf Benirschke and most of the Chargers, actor and former Ram Fred Dryer, Raider Mike Haynes and actor Christopher Atkins.

Last year, the tournament raised $25,000 toward building a home for severely abused children on the foundation's ranch outside Escondido. The foundation plans to use the money from this year's tournament to build another house on the ranch.
