Ronnie James Dio‘s widow, Wendy Dio, is hosting a Celebrity Rock ‘N Bowl fundraiser in L.A. next Thursday to raise money for the T.J. Martell Foundation’s efforts to find a cure for cancer.

Among those expected to attend the event at Pinz Bowling Center in Studio City are Lita Ford; comics Craig Gass and Elaine Boosler; members of Stone Sour, Alice in Chains, Ratt, Megadeth, Asia, and Armored Saint; and many former members of Dio.

There’s also an auction of autographed bowling pins to benefit the charity. Aerosmith, Metallica, Cage the Elephant, Fuel, Fleetwood Mac, Yes, Maroon 5, Ariana Grande and Hilary Duff are some of the artists who’ve signed pins.
