Cannabis industry bowlers will earn $4.20 a strike for veterans at The Big Lebongski Bowling Tournament on Friday, April 20 at the Santa Fe Bowling Center in Las Vegas.
California cannabis companies come together for ongoing The Big Lebongski bowling tournaments, which fundraise for cannabis-minded charities. In December, Big Lebongski teams funded one CannaKids patient’s CBD oil. California-based charity CannaKids supplies CBD oil to adults and kids, specializing in pediatric cancer, autism and epilepsy.
The Big Lebongski Tournament is seeking new teams to bowl in support of the Herogrown Foundation. The tournament is sponsored by Supreme Organics and Edibles List Magazine.
For every strike recorded in the 420 STRIKE-OUT event, edibles company Supreme Organics will make a $4.20 donation to the HeroGrown Foundation.
Formerly known as Grow For Vets, the HeroGrown Foundation advocates for veterans to have affordable access to medical cannabis. The organization recently lauched a new program, Operation AirDrop, which provides members with a free monthly HeroGrown Hope Box including hemp-based CBD products.
“We really appreciate the support of The Big Lebongski 420 Strikeout,” said Roger B. Martin, HeroGrown Foundation founder. “We couldn’t do what we do without events like these that support our lifesaving mission.”
Michael Hurt, CEO of Supreme Organics which is sponsoring the tournament, is an army veteran. “Supreme Organics is stoked to be able to help HeroGrown and as a vet myself, you can bet that I’ll be hollering out a “Hooyah” every time I see a strike rolled,” Hurt said. “We hope that everyone out there in weedland comes out and joins in on the fun, especially with such a worthy organization benefiting from your on-lane successes.”
The victorious bowling team is invited to The Big Lebongski Tournament of Champions on April 29 in Burbank, California – where the grand championship team gets to take home The Big Lebongski trophy. Each winning team member also recieves a bowling pin pipe.
So far, Tournament of Champions invitees include 420pros.com, The Biff Spliffs, Top Shelf Express Delivery, Pure Life Collective, Green Goddess Collective and Edibles List Magazine.
Before the final tournament this spring, the bowling league has a mystery to solve. The Big Lebongski Touring Bowling Tournament series trophy was stolen, in a scenario eerily similar to the rug heist in The Big Lebowski.
