RAI$ING HAPPINESS in 2021

To Our Sponsors,   
         
     To Our Sponsor, Due to the continued concerns over the COVID-19 Coronavirus and the social distancing requirement and with being socially responsible. We held our 33rd annual Charity for Children Adult bowling tournament on Sunday, April 25, 2021. We divided the 400 bowlers into 4 shifts instead of 2 shifts. What a workout…We did not ask sponsors for any donations this year. We did receive a few. We proceeded as follows for monies and items received: ***All sponsors got credit for last year and this year.*** *Bowlers monies and spots from 2020 were held over for this years tournament. **Sponsor monies in 2020 were donated to the charities. Donations were divided amongst the bowler's choice determined by the charity as noted on the bowler's entry form.{$15,225.00} All shirt money sponsors were carried over to this years shirt. So, between last year and this years $18,014.00 donation we totaled out at $33,239.00 ***All Corporate, Logo and Name Sponsors will receive their yearly certificate and shirt. All contributing sponsors will be listed on our web site. All non-perishable donated items were held over for this year's tournament.

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. Below you will find a list of our charities and their years and totals over the years. We have included websites for the charities; however, feel free to contact us directly if you have questions about your donation or sponsorship.
