Will the Grinch steal a bowling ball, can Thing 1 best Thing 2 or Who will show up first — the Lorax or the Cat in the Hat?
Those are a few of the questions that may get answered on Mar. 9 at the Dr. Seuss themed Bowl for Kids Sake, for Ponoka’s Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) at Leisure Lanes Bowling Centre.
The event is sponsored by Landrex and is the organization’s largest annual fundraiser needed to operate its various programs throughout the year.
“BBBS is celebrating 30 years this year, so we are optimistic we will hit our goal of $20,000,” stated Morgen Chernick, program manager.
“Right now, we have 30 teams confirmed and we have room for 48 in what is a great event for team building or something family-friendly. We also know there are several businesses that have some competitive rivalries between them in town when it comes to events like this.”
Teams can consist of up to six people, with the entry fee being that they raise a minimum of $400 in pledges. Chernick added that a grand prize can be had, both for a team and an individual, for raising the most pledges.
As well, teams have the opportunity to choose their time to bowl at the top of each hour starting at 4 p.m. with the last teams striking out on their turn at 9 p.m.
“There are also a number of door prizes available, such as tickets to the popular Ponoka Stampede, free green fees with carts from the Ponoka Golf Club and travel vouchers just to name a few,” she said.
In addition to the teams, corporate sponsorships are still available at either the Gold ($500), Silver ($250) or Bronze ($150) levels. Chernick stated there are already seven Gold sponsors on board.
