Brandin Cooks set to host ‘Strikes for Kids Bowling Classic’

Brandin Cooks is taking some time during training camp to help run a local fundraiser. Cooks will be sponsoring the "Strikes for Kids New Orleans Bowling Classic" on August 10, according to Rosalyn Eason of

The event will run from 5:30-8:30 p.m. and gives fans the chance to meet the rising star from the New Orleans Saints. What’s it cost to get in on the fun and meet Cooks? Well, here’s your breakdown from Eason.

"For $65, bowlers will enjoy two hours of bowling with shoe rental and receive an event shirt, towel, bag, wristband, pizza, soft drinks a group pictures. VIP tickets for $100 include all the benefits of a bowler plus a VIP meet-and-greet and an autographed picture." Eason explained.

Pretty cool deal here, while Cooks is going to be sponsoring the organization which is a nonprofit that helps benefit youth in the community. For this cause, all of the funds will be used by the Brandin Cooks’ Worth Living Foundation.

If you’re around town on August 10, don’t miss out on the opportunity to talk football with the speedy receiver!
