Eagles’ Safety Rodney McLeod recently hosted his 3rd annual Bowloween Bash at the Lucky Strike in Philadelphia. The yearly pre-Halloween bowling party event benefits the American Association of Cancer Research.
Giving back to the community and raising money for children seems to be something the McLeod’s wholeheartedly enjoy.
The Bowloween party is a family friendly event for people of all ages. Drawing a larger crowd with more donations and support each time around.
McLeod spent most of the night greeting fans, talking to bowlers, and having a really good time.
Partygoers and a few Eagles showed up with their best Halloween costumes on. The host and his wife dressed up as their older selves. Teammates Rasul Douglas, Ronald Darby, Nathan Gerry and Andre Sendejo were in attendance.
Malcolm Jenkins and his wife arrived after Jenkins’ town hall meeting at the Community College of Philadelphia which took place during the same time.
McLeod has a personal connection to cancer. He lost his grandmother to pancreatic cancer during his senior year in high school.
McLeod spoke briefly about his grandmother’s battle and encouraged folks to stay strong.
