The Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club will be hosting their annual Bowl-A-Thon on Friday March 16 at the Milford Bowling Lanes. This year, participants will have the opportunity to bowl unlimited games from 6pm-11pm, bid on a large selection of silent auction items and will even have a chance to win $25,000, just for the minimal entry fee of $25.
The Bowl-A-Thon will generate funds secured by each bowler and various sponsors that will benefit the local Boys & Girls Club in Milford. All bowlers are encouraged to raise additional money as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware will donate the Milford Club an additional 50% on every dollar pledged. Participants that raise $50 or more will receive a Bowl-A-Thon tee shirt.
“I am very impressed by the level of commitment our Board of Directors and staff have placed on this year’s event,” commented Dorian Mendez-Vaz, Executive Director of the Greater Milford Boys and Girls Club. “We have had so much fun planing the event and look forward to having such a great evening with the community.”
The evening will be full of surprises as the Boys & Girls Club staff introduce mini-competitions during the event. For an additional $5 donation bowlers will be entered into the red pin contest which will allow participants to win several prizes by throwing a strike when the head pin comes up red. All bowlers will also be automatically entered into a drawing to participate in the 7/10 split contest. Each hour one bowler will be chosen to take their best shot at a 7/10 split and will win $25,0000 if successful.
“This year should be a lot of fun,” commented event organizer and member of the Boys & Girls Club Board of Directors Mark McDaniel. “We are expecting a larger number of bowlers and have collected some really nice items for the silent auction and red pin contest.”
To secure a ticket, bowlers can register as individuals or as teams of six bowlers. Businesses and individuals can also support the event be becoming a lane, team or event sponsor. Each level will include unique perks from sponsorship signage over the lanes to special recognition on the official Bowl-A-Thon tee shirt.
Proceeds from the event will be used to enhance and expand the educational, athletic and character building programs offered to club members.
