Reach for Resources invites members of the community to participate in its annual Bowl-A-Thon, being held Saturday, April 13, 2019, 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. This is the 27th year of this annual bowling fundraiser. The event will take place at Park Tavern in St. Louis Park (3401 Louisiana Ave. S.).
Participants can form their own team of 4-6 people or be placed on a team. Each person must collect a total of at least $60 in pledges and donations. However, those registering by March 15 can reduce that minimum to $50. Pledges and donations are due prior to the event to qualify for bowling and lunch. Those wishing to attend for the pizza lunch only can register for $20. Registration and pledge forms are available at https://www.reachforresources.org/. Proceeds will go towards Reach for Resources’ mission of supporting individuals with developmental disabilities and mental illness.
Reach’s Director of Adaptive Recreation Emily Miller says, “This fun event is a great opportunity for those not familiar with Reach to experience what we have to offer, either by participating or volunteering. Get to know some of the awesome individuals we support in a relaxed environment.” Bowlers will receive t-shirts, and prizes will be given out for fundraising efforts and for bowling strikes. While all bowlers will receive a prize, some may earn one valued at over $100.
