FUN FOR A GOOD CAUSE!
Get your hats on and your asses out on Sunday, September 28th for our annual Bowl-a-thon, in 2014 themed “Bowl-HAT-on” from 1pm to 3pm at Selma's Freeway Lanes, 8265 E Dinuba Ave., Selma CA 93662.
Freeway Lanes is a mere 20 minutes from Fresno and right on the old Golden State Highway at Dinuba Ave.
The folks at Selma Lanes were so warm and welcoming at our “Bowling for Pride” event, Community Link chose to move their annual Bowl-A-Thon to their vintage bowling lanes.
Community Link’s Fall Bowl-A-Thon is an afternoon of fun, and a fantastic fundraiser for our varied and wonderful programs that touch many peoples’ lives, such as the LGBT Youth and Seniors’ Groups, Kids Like Us parenting group, Speaking Out LGBT Speaker’s Bureau and Fresno Rainbow Pride to name only a few of our many programs.
What makes this event so special is that it brings almost all of our community’s organizations, groups, and business together for a day of “community unity” to support programs that make a difference.
Folks are encouraged to get decked out in their best, wildest, biggest, craziest unique hats and ensemble! Say no to baseball caps or beanies, say yes to Easter bonnets and fedoras!
Individuals are encourage to put a team together of friends and family or to encourage their fellow members of the great groups they belong to. Teams can be made up of 3 or 4 individuals. Each team's buy-in is a minimum donation of $25 which directly to Community Link.
The greater the donation each teams makes puts them into the running to win the “Top Striker” trophy (awarded to the team that donates the most $) and bragging rights. Some of our Top Strikers in the past have been: PG&E Pride Network, The Imperial Dove Court, IRS’s GLOBE and Deja Vu Nightclub.
We would love to see the Fresno Pride Lions, The Gay Men’s Mixer, POW and everyone else come out and support the 2014 Bowl-a-thon!
There is also a BAR Trophy up for grabs and it would be great to see which of the four bars’ teams will take home the “CockTail & Pins” trophy for the best game. Will it be Club Legends, The Red Lantern, The Phoenix or the North Tower Circle?
Each bowler must also pay $10 to the lanes, which takes care of their up to two games and their shoes.
Freeway Lanes will have their full service bar and coffee shop open for our enjoyment. Open to all ages!
As always, there will be trophies for the Best In Theme (group and individual), Most Original Team Name, Best Game, Most Genetically Challenged, and the Top Strikers!
