Falcons left guard Justin Blalock has always been active off the field, working to promote the importance of academics for student-athletes, music education, and much more. He has primarily focused his efforts in and around his hometown of Plano-Texas, but Blalock will host his first fundraising event in his adopted hometown of Atlanta this month, and you're invited to join Blalock and his teammates for an evening of bowling for a great cause.

The first-annual Justin Blalock Foundation Celebrity Bowling event will be held on November 20, 2014 at Bowlmor Lanes, 2175 Savoy Lane, Atlanta, Georgia. Check in begins at 6:30 p.m. and the event lasts until 9 p.m. Early bird tickets are available through November 10th, and the price per person is $75. The price will be $100 per person after November 10th. Pizza and unlimited soft drinks are included in the cost of admission. Not interested in bowling, but you want to come and hang out with Justin Blalock and friends for the evening? You can do that for just $63 per person.

The Justin Blalock Foundation strives to emphasize the importance of academics. Only about one percent of college football players make it to the National Football League, and it's necessary for student-athletes to understand the importance of academics. Blalock's foundation also focuses on helping young people learn to cope with peer pressure and using education to establish a "game plan" to win in life.

All proceeds from the Justin Blalock Foundation Celebrity Bowling event will benefit their efforts to positively impact young people. You can learn more about Blalock's foundation and their efforts on his website, and you can register for the celebrity bowling event online as well.
