Bowling alley to host benefit for families of fallen St. Petersburg officers

ST. PETERSBURG — A local bowling alley will host a benefit Saturday for the families of two fallen St. Petersburg officers.

Ten Pin Lanes said money raised will go to the families of Jeffrey A. Yaslowitz and Thomas J. Baitinger, both killed Jan. 24.

Local law enforcement officers were expected to attend. More than 200 people and 19 sponsors were signed up by Monday, said Sandi Lubisco, assistant manager.

The event is scheduled to run from 5 to 8 p.m. at 1453 Pasadena Ave S.

Tickets are $20 per person. Companies can sponsor the event for $125 a lane. That includes a month of advertising on the bowling alley's TV screens and sponsor board.

There will be raffles and an auction of items including hotel stays and jewelry.

Ten Pin Lanes only has 20 lanes, but Lubisco said they'd add more people to a lane instead of turning people away.

For more information, call (727) 381-1010.
