Read Ahead’s 5th Annual Bowling Fundraiser (#YPGCARES)

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

On Thursday, March 3 from 6-9 p.m., the Read Ahead Junior Board will host its Fifth Annual Strikes, Spares, and Splits: A night of bowling to benefit Read Ahead.

Teams will bowl for glory (but mostly for fun) at Frames NYC, an upscale bowling lounge in midtown Manhattan (9th Avenue at 40th Street).  From 6 – 7 p.m., teams will enjoy a private reception with drink specials and tasty hors d’oeuvres, plus a silent auction and raffle.  Each team will then bowl for 2 hours (shoe rental included!), and will enjoy beer and snacks, as well as the chance to claim victory by taking home one of the night’s trophies.

There is no team-registration fee, but each four-person team that participates is asked to:

  • Raise a team minimum of $400/($100 per person) in support of Read Ahead.
  • Create an individual fundraising page on CrowdRise for each bowler.
  • Express your team spirit by crafting a clever team name and sporting a festive costume at the event!
  • Trophies will be awarded to the team that fundraises the highest amount, the individual player who fundraises the highest amount, the team with the best name, and the team with the best team spirit!

Read Ahead is setting aside one lane for 8 – 10 YPG bowlers, which will be broken down into two teams. Please RSVP here to commit to and secure your spot on the YPG Teams. Email Megan Mills and Eboné Gaskins with any questions.
