The pins were set, the alleys were lit, and an electrifying atmosphere at Pinz Bowling Kitchen + Bar as iconic rock figure Gene Simmons hosted an unforgettable birthday bowling party on August 25, 2023. This star-studded event not only commemorated the birthday of the legendary KISS frontman but also aimed to shatter barriers for children in desperate need of surgical care, through the unwavering support of MendingKids.org.
Gene Simmons, renowned both for his musical prowess and his philanthropic endeavors, has been a steadfast advocate for MendingKids.org for years. The organization, which has been a beacon of hope for countless children, provides critical surgical care to those who lack the resources to afford such procedures. Gene, a passionate supporter, shared his heartfelt sentiment: “Every day is a gift. I’ve been a major supporter of MendingKids.org for years. They have provided free surgical care to literally thousands of children in need who would otherwise not be able to afford these very important operations. Our wonderful doctors have contributed their time and all costs are free.”
The atmosphere of the event was further charged with excitement as attendees enthusiastically participated in a live auction featuring exclusive items, VIP tickets to their last concerts and priceless Kiss memorabilia and instruments personally endorsed by Gene, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer, and Eric Singer who were all in attendance to celebrate.
