I have discussed Carlos Martinez and his charitable efforts a few times in the past. Through his foundation, Tsunami Waves, Carlos has hosted glove drives, made visits to schools, and hosted a vitilla tournament, among many other things. Tonight he will host one of his foundation's biggest events, the charity bowling fundraiser at Flamingo Bowl in St. Louis. Participants will be able to bowl with Carlos and other Cardinals and be able to participate in a silent auction and raffle that will take place during the evening. Proceeds from the event will go to benefit children in the greater St. Louis area and in the Dominican Republic! Online tickets are sold out, but there will tickets available at the door:
