Portland, ME, November 04, 2011 --( Bayside Bowl will host Viva Lebowski 2011, a tribute to the Coen Brothers’ cult classic, The Big Lebowski. The event will feature an evening of bowling, trivia and costume contests, and will also include a screening of the Coen Brothers’ film.

In its inaugural year, proceeds went to benefit local business owner Nicholas Stevens, a Portland resident who has been struggling with the cost of treatment for Multiple Sclerosis since opening his bakery, 13th Cookie. Over $2500 was raised and 150 tickets were sold for the evening’s event. For 2011, all ticket sales will be donated to the American Heart Association - Maine.

"We're so pleased to bring Viva Lebowski back again this year, and the number of businesses which have offered sponsorships has been a tremendous help,” said event coordinator Dave Cousins. "The movie is a cult classic, and the event is a diverse mix of people. College students, older folks, there’s so many people who love The Big Lebowski. We're glad to use this as vehicle for a good cause, too."
