Kiwanis Hosts Fun Bowl-A-Thon

By Halle Wynn / Staff Writer

Bowling is a fun activity to do whether it is with friends or family. On Saturday, April 22nd from 1-4pm at Strike Force Lanes, Kiwanis of Greenfield will be hosting a bowling fundraiser. The tickets are $15 for students or 2 for $20 and adult tickets are $20. Buying a ticket will get you the opportunity to play 3 games of bowling and shoe rental. Tickets are going on sale now. You can visit Mrs. Marler if you are interested or see Halle Wynn. Not only can you pre order tickets but you can buy tickets at the door, although it is highly recommended to get them now due to planning purposes.

At Strike Force Lanes, lanes can handle groups of 5 unless you have more people you would like to be on a lane, then Kiwanis can separate them and put them into lanes right beside each other. The money raised from this fundraiser will go to Kiwanis Clubs such as Key Club, and various special causes or diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis.

In addition, Amanda Dobson, current Key Club president, states “Another Key Club at a different school started this fundraiser a couple of years ago, so the Greenfield branch of Kiwanis wanted to try it and asked if we wanted to take charge of it. As a club last year, we decided that it would be a good and this year we decided to do it again.”

Mrs. Michelle Marler adds, “Kiwanis chose this because other Kiwanis clubs have had success with it. They asked us (Key Club) to join them”. Daniel Riley, past president of Kiwanis Of Greenfield, says, “We like the fellowship and helping provide over $20,000 to support Riley Children’s Hospital and Hancock County youth”.
