Local entrepreneur Taylor Kellstrom and the SCV Book Exchange, in association with Valencia Lanes, hosted “Bowling for Kids,” a charity event that benefited the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles on Dec. 15. The event included a Toys for Tots, silent auction, and bowling.

Silent auction items were donated by Tee Plus, the Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles, Los Angeles Clippers, L.A. Kings, Locally Unknown, SC Vape Outlet, Vista Valencia Golf Course, La Toscana, Apollo’s Barbershop, Stevenson Ranch Carwash, KHTS 1220 am, SCVTV, Kyle Cunningham, Jake Weimer, UCLA, Jersey Mike’s, Yamatos, Dino’s Chicken and Burgers, and Smart Girl World.

“I’ve been very blessed in my life, this hospital is a huge reason why I am here today,” said event organizer Taylor Kellstrom, a West Ranch High School graduate class of 2008.

After suffering a head injury from a motocross accident at the age of 9, he was airlifted to the Children’s Hospital.

“The Children’s Hospital is something that is very close to my heart, which is why I continue with making “Bowling for Kids” an annual event to help these children during the holidays and to make their holidays more special in any way I possibly can,” Kellstrom said.

The event this year was terrific with the attendance doubling from last year along with the money raised for these children.

“I had a blast at the event, the prizes were awesome and I’ve already planned to be at this event next year,” said Michael Keregha, a COC student.

It was great to see local businesses really come together to make this event happen. With SCV being a small town it was an amazing event to see how people stick together to make wonderful things happen for these children.
