CORPUS CHRISTI - Zombies took over a local bowling alley today and children were their target! Zombies of all ages were summoned to Saratoga Lanes this evening with one goal in mind: helping kiddos! CASA of the Coastal Bend teamed-up with Texas Toyz to host zombie bowling. The money raised tonight will help benefit local foster children who are part of the CASA program. We caught up with a young man who received help from CASA when he was a child and now volunteers with them.
"They actually go out, they help, they do things for the kids," said volunteer Jerry Leal. "they help them break out of their shells and just show them that the world is gonna be a better place."
Several more zombie bowling nights are planned along with other events leading up to the 2013 Zombie Walk in October. The organizer wouldn't reveal much but says he has big plans up his sleeve.
"We've got five other events we're planning for soon," said Dean Fritsch with Texas Toyz, "I ain't saying anything yet but they're gonna be pretty big and they're gonna be a lot of fun. Welcome to zombie land!" Last year's zombie walk brought in $16,000.
