Led by owner Robert Kraft, a number of current and former Patriots joined linebacker Jerod Mayo at King's in Dedham on Monday night for the fourth annual "Mayo Bowl" -- which raised money for two charities close to the hear of its host.

In total there were more than 400 guests on hand for the event, with proceeds benefiting the Boston Medical Center -- which last year unveiled the "Mayo Zone" in its pediatric waiting room -- and Pitching in for Kids, which aims to improve the lives of children around New England. The guest list was star-studded, too, with Tom Brady, Tedy Bruschi, Danny Aiken, Dont'a Hightower, Brandon Spikes, Julian Edelman, Chandler Jones, Vince Wilfork, and Hall of Famer Andre Tippet among those participating in what has become one of the best-attended charity events on the club's calendar every year. Usually near the start of the season, some players said last year that it has even become something of a bonding experience they look forward to.

This year the boss brought his girlfriend, Ricki Noel Lander, and she was at Kraft's side as they posed with Jerod and Chantel Mayo in the photo above. The Mayos also posed with their kids for the photo below, as did ex-Patriot Matt Light with his bowling squad in the picture below that.

No word yet on how much money was raised this time around, though the 2011 and 2012 undertakings reportedly raised close to $250,000 for the two charities. A good time well spent, it would seem.
