SEATTLE – A special Professional Bowlers Association League auction begins today on pba.com featuring a variety of autographed merchandise donated by PBA League members. Proceeds from the online auction, which ends on Wednesday, March 26, will benefit NBA star Chris Paul’s CP3 Foundation.
The online auction is the conclusion of a competition between PBA League teams that began during the PBA World Series of Bowling V at the South Point complex in Las Vegas in November. A special PBA League Skills Challenge pitted the eight team captains against each other in a series of unique bowling events, with the winner earning the right to name the charity that would benefit from the auction. Jason Belmonte, the captain of the L.A. X team owned by Paul, won the challenge, and he selected Paul’s charity as the benefactor.
Established in 2005, the Los Angeles Clippers’ all-star point guard’s CP3 Foundation provides funding for activities ranging from a scholarship program to food drives to recreational support programs for children in under-served communities.

Bowling fans are asked to visit pba.com (www.pba.com/auction) to check out the merchandise available, and then submit bids via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Included in the auction are a number of bowling balls and game-worn jerseys belonging to PBA League franchise players Belmonte (L.A. X), New York City WTT KingPins (Pete Weber), Dallas Striker (Norm Duke), BROOKLYN STyLES (Sean Rash), Motown Muscle (Mike Fagan), Philadelphia Hitmen (Bill O’Neill), Pittsburgh Jack Rabbits (Osku Palermaa) and Silver Lake Atom Splitters (Chris Barnes) as well as items donated by PBA Hall of Famers Amleto Monacelli, Parker Bohn III, Walter Ray Williams Jr., and other PBA League competitors, including established PBA champions and stars of the future.
