RAI$ING in 2018

To Our Sponsors,   
         
     On March 25, 2018, we are excited to invite you to take part in our 30th Annual Charities for Children Adult Bowling Tournament. 2018 will be a year to remember and with your support we hope to raise at least $68,000. We are currently at a 29 year total of $432,379.00, and in 2018 hope to reach 1/2 million dollars with everyone's extra contributions. Our 400 bowlers generously voted to increase their bowling fees by ten dollars, and now we need the Erie Community to pull together to reach this goal for the children. All bowlers, instead of winning money for themselves, choose which listed charity to donate their winnings. Other than small mailing expenses, we give 100% of what we raise directly to our listed charities.

Charities for Children, Inc., is looking for fourteen Corporate Sponsors this year. This sponsorship will allow you to delegate which of the fourteen charity's, your money will go directly too. This is an opportunity for your corporation, or someone you know to help us, help the children. In 2018, we are also asking for our Tournament Sponsors to donate $500. Both Corporate and Tournament sponsors will receive a banner on an alley, acknowledgement via our website, and a commemorative T-shirt with your logo on the back. A contributing sponsor can donate cash (over $200. will have their name listed on the back of our t-shirt), merchandise, or gift cards. Big or small we appreciate them all! Most importantly, with your generous donation, children will be able to have specific needs filled, hopes and dreams come true, and all will feel the happiness.

What started off as a friendly competition for bragging rights, is now an Incorporated, tax deductible 501©3 charity organization. Holding a Certificate of Merit for Community Crime Prevention, and a National Philanthropy Fund-Raising Award in Northwest PA Chapter. We will accomplish our goal with everyone's extra generosity this year. Below you will find a list of our charities and their years and totals over the 29 years. We have included websites for the charities; however, feel free to contact us directly if you have questions about your donation or sponsorship.
