Last year many of my friends joined me at my first big fundraising event of the calendar year for a great afternoon of bowling, pool, food, music and fun. Please save the date, forward the message to everyone you know that would be interested and sign up today! Hope you can join us and see you there!
* * * SJ’s Most Fragile Children Benefit From Annual ‘Strikes and Tykes’ Bowl-A-Thon & Billiards Benefit * * *
The Children’s Healthcare Foundation of South Jersey presents "Strikes and Tykes: Bowl-A-Thon & Billiards Benefit for SJ’s Children" on Saturday, February 26, 2005, from 1-3pm at the Playdrome, 1535 N. Kings Highway, Cherry Hill. Proceeds from the event will be used to send children with cancer to summer camp with their siblings, as well as fund scholarships for children with learning disabilities. A portion of funds raised will help individuals and organizations in need through the Foundation’s grant-making program.
"Strikes and Tykes is an easy way to contribute to the well-being of children – while enjoying snacks and music, winning prizes and having a great time.”
Sign-in begins at Noon. Bowling and billiards begin at 1pm. Participants who raise or donate at least $50 will enjoy three games of bowling or those who raise at least $35 will enjoy two hours of billiards. Everyone receives pizza, soda, snacks and incentive prizes. Participants will also win t-shirts, buttons, coolers, movie tickets and shopping sprees to local stores, based upon on how much money they raise. Prizes also will be awarded to the child, adult and team that raises the most money and bowls the highest score. B101.1 FM and the Buzz Bee will entertain bowlers and observers throughout the event with a live remote, photo opportunities, games and special prizes.
"Our bowl-a-thon continues to be a resource for children when no other avenue exists," said Executive Director Kory Michael Aversa. "Our bowlers’ donations have been used to make vehicles wheelchair accessible for small children, provide glasses for low-income youth and send kids with cancer to summer camp with their siblings. Money raised stays local to help provide for our children’s well being."
