 A 6-string Jackson guitar donated by Chris Broderick of Act of Defiance and stage played by him while on tour with Megadeth in 2012 was auctioned to raise additional funds.  Among the raffle prizes awarded were a specially-designed bowling ball and a bowling pin featuring the BOWL 4 RONNIE artwork, each accompanied by a Bowling Party donated by host venue Pinz Bowling Center.
