Things are getting spiced up for the 2013 Boys & Girls Club Bowl-a-Thon. This year, some friendly competition is being encouraged amongst the local businesses and churches in the surrounding area. Each organization is being asked to sponsor a Bowling Team.
Just imagine if the members of Mount Olive Baptist Church were to participate in a bowling match against Sixth Avenue Baptist Church. Hmmmm, which congregation has the best bowlers in the Navarro County? Guess we will just have to wait and see on the scheduled day of the event, Saturday, Aug. 24, from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Bulldog Lanes in Corsicana. The winners would not only receive bragging rights for the remainder of the year, but a prized $150 Gas Card. Not interested in sponsoring a team? Not a problem. Individual donations are also encouraged and welcomed. All proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Navarro County. Also, all contributions are tax deductible.
For more information, contact Tasha White of the Boys & Girls Club at (903) 872-9231. Support a child today through a great game of bowling.
