Wildwood Lanes bowling alley in Riverhead was packed Sunday evening with area residents who attended a fundraiser for 9-year-old Christopher Timpone, a fourth-grader at Aquebogue Elementary School who was recently diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer.

Every single lane was packed with bowlers, some donning T-shirts that read “I play for Chris” and had “Timpone” written across the back.

The fundraiser was hosted by the Riverhead High School Council for Unity, an anti-gang student enrichment group.
