24 hours of bowling to raise money for Fox Lane Sports Booster Club
Grand Prix New York (GPNY), the area’s leading indoor entertainment and team-building venue, will host an overnight fundraising bowling event on January 10, 2014 at 6:00pm to benefit the Fox Lane Sports Booster Club (FLSBC). The Bowl-a-Thon will span a full 24-hour period, using all 19 lanes at SpinsBowl inside GPNY. The Bedford Central School District’s (BCSD) Board of Education and the FLSBC will organize and coordinate teams; 200 participants and spectators are expected.
The Bowl-A-Thon, sponsored by Mt. Kisco Honda and Grand Prix New York, will feature various competitions, prizes and themes, including a free Honda to anyone who bowls a perfect game. Attendees will enjoy live music and DJ entertainment, and ProClinix Sports Physical Therapy & Chiropractic wellness of Pleasantville and Armonk will be on-site offering massages and stretching.
Team sponsors include Bradsell Painting and Carpentry, Mt. Kisco Sports and Pro-Swing. Additional sponsorship is needed from local businesses to provide food, beverages, awards, and more. Individual participants or teams can be sponsored by pledges for every hour bowled. The FLSBC, which seeks to raise over $100,000 and use the proceeds to build a permanent concessions stand with restrooms at the Fox Lane Memorial Stadium, is calling on the Bedford Central School District community to participate either as a bowler or sponsor.
“This will be the third fundraiser we’ve held for the Fox Lane Boosters in recent years,” said GPNY Vice President Nat Mundy. “If there’s one way that makes sense to give back, it’s by investing in our local school districts and encouraging other businesses to step up and do the same. The Bowl-A-Thon should be a lot of fun, and it’s for a great cause.”
