Upon hearing of the tragedy in West, Bowen who hails from nearby Waco knew he had to what he could to help.
"I immediately knew that I wanted to raise as much money as I could to help with the community’s rebuilding efforts,” said Bowen. “I have many fond memories of West. It was the town in which I had my first real music gig. I even used to work at a family pizza restaurant there and it is the hometown one of my best friends. My heart goes out to all affected by the explosion and I want nothing more than to help as many as I can through the Bowen Classic this year.”
