Pujols, C.J. charity events set for Thursday …

The Angels’ two big free-agent signings of the offseason, Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson, will host their first big charity events since joining the Angels during Thursday’s off day. Pujols’ will be a golf event in the morning, Wilson’s will be a bowling outing later in the afternoon. Here’s more info …

PUJOLS will host his 10th Celebrity Golf Classic — and first on the West Coast — at Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. A field of 180 golfers is expected to attend, making up 36 groups of five, each of which will be paired with a celebrity (here’s a list of confirmed celebs). The shotgun start will take place at 10 a.m. PT, followed by a cocktail hour and dinner program, which will include a live and silent auction. All proceeds will benefit the Pujols Family Foundation, which provides assistance to orphans in the Dominican Republic as well as people suffering with Down syndrome.

C.J. will host his will host the fourth annual Throw Strikes Bowling Tournament to benefit Wilson’s Children’s Charities, the patients of the Hematology Clinic of CHOC Children’s and The Hemostasis and Thrombosis Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The event will take place at 300 Anaheim, which is located on 321 West Katella Ave., and other Angels players are expected to attend. Festivities will include dinner, a raffle, bowling with prizes for top scores and Wilson serving as a deejay. A $50 donation allows entry to the event along with one free game of bowling and shoe rental. Tickets are available on Wilson’s website, leftylefty.com, and at the door the day of the event.
