3-1-14 bowl for kids sake

Bowl For Kids’ Sake, the area’s largest bowling fundraiser, kicked off Friday at Parkway Lanes in Fond du Lac. The public is invited to participate.   This year’s zombie themed event is slated to raise $85,000 to support one-to-one mentoring in Fond du Lac County.  Joan Pinch, Bowl for Kids’ Sake chairperson,   “It’s a fun party with prizes, refreshments, and of course, bowling.  But it’s about the children and the great things that happen for them when they are able to spend quality time with adults.”   The event runs through March 2 in Fond du Lac and takes place on March 8 at the Plaza Bowl in Ripon.  Additional prizes will be awarded for best zombie style.  For participants who are interested, zombie make-up artists will be available for the hour prior to each bowling shift to help set the mood for the event.   The person who raises the most money in collected pledges will receive a $250 gift certificate to the business of their choice. The event is presented by Grande Cheese Company, Mid-States Aluminum, 96-1 TCX, Hoppers All Star Trophy and Taco Bell.  Silver Sponsors are Agnesian HealthCare, Baker Cheese, FDL Noon Kiwanis, Fox Valley Savings Bank, J.F. Ahern, Parkway Lanes, Society Insurance, Anytime Fitness, Michels Corporation and Wilderness Resort.   The vision of Big Brothers Big Sisters is that all children achieve success in life. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a United Way agency serving all of Fond du Lac County.
