Bowling teams encouraged to register for event

| March 7, 2015

COSHOCTON – The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County is encouraging anyone interested in participating in the 35th annual Bowling For Kids event to contact the agency at 722-9095 to register teams. This year’s event is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 20-21 at the Coshocton Bowling Lanes.

This year’s “Spring Into Bowling With Kids” theme is meant to encourage the welcome return of good weather and brightened spirits. The agency works to provide mentoring programs for children and families.

As the agency’s primary fundraiser, Bowling For Kids is responsible for raising more than 50 percent of the agency’s annual budget. Funds are raised through the creation of five person teams, who raise money on behalf of the agency. Each adult team member is asked to raise at least $50. Throughout the event, teams will bowl two games, enjoy fresh pizza, listen to music, and get a chance at incentives and door prizes. Available bowling times are 3 p.m. on Friday, March 20 and 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 21. Individuals are encouraged to call 722-9095 to reserve a lane.

Bowling For Kids is designed as a celebration of the community’s support for the mentoring programs provided by The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County including the Little Buddies program, parent mentoring, and the peer mentoring program, as well as expanded special programming which has included a summer youth program and parent education.

Anyone interested in learning more about Bowling For Kids or any of the programs being offered by the agency is encouraged to call 722-9095.
