Support a solid cause and get your Bowl on Draft Weekend

Denver Broncos long-snapper Lonie Paxton, along with the Active Force Foundation and Mr. Biggs of Littleton, will host the 2010 NFL Draft and Bowling Bash party on Thursday, April 22. The proceeds will benefit Paxton's foundation, the Active Force Foundation, and its support of the Wounded Warrior Project. Mr. Biggs is located at 9670 W. Coal Mine Ave. in Littleton, Colo.

Paxton will be joined by many of his Denver Broncos teammates and NFL friends for this special event, centered around the NFL Draft, which is being held in prime time on a weeknight for the first time.

The Draft Party kicks off at 4 p.m. and the fun continues with the Celebrity Bowling Bash at 5:30 p.m., in which sponsors will bowl with Lonie and other NFL players, as well as members of the U.S. Military's Warrior Transition Battalion.

"The causes supported by this event are very important to me," Paxton said. "This is the perfect way to come together, have some fun and raise money for organizations I respect and support. Come join us as we salute our country's true heroes."
