(XENIA, OH)—The Greene Community Health Foundation is “glowing” with excitement over an upcoming event for families looking for a little fun this January. Bowling for Babies is set for Saturday, January 21st, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at Beaver-Vu Bowl in Beavercreek. And this time, the bowling lanes will come alive with all new glow-in-the-dark effects, exciting lights and music, but now at a reduced cost!
“Staff took a look at the cost of running this fundraiser and decided, with it being held just after the holidays, to offer a better price to families and businesses that come and support the Foundation, while still being able to put a little bit of money back into the account,” said Laurie Fox, Development Coordinator for the Greene County Combined Health District. “This will give families a bit of a break and we’re even offering a special rate for groups,” she added. Families are invited to register up to 6 people of all ages, per team. If registering less than 6 bowlers, participants may be placed on a lane with other bowlers. Registration is now open and families are encouraged to take advantage of the Early Bird Rate of just $20.00 per person by January 6th, 2012. A youth rate was added at just $15.00 each for ages 12 and younger (no early bird rate for youth). After January 6th and through the day of the event, the cost is $25.00 each for ages 13 and older. If you aren’t a bowler, but would like to come and support the event and enjoy the prizes and food, it’s just $10.00 per person. The final deadline to register for this event is January 13, 2012.
Now in its second year, this event is a fundraiser for the various children’s clinics available to the public at the Greene County Combined Health District (GCCHD) located in Xenia. From immunizations against childhood diseases and dental cleanings and checkups to the Tots-N-Teens Well Child clinic and the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) clinic, thousands of children and their families receive services through GCCHD, many of whom are under- or un-insured. This family-friendly fun event will feature 2 ½ hours of glow bowling, raffles, prizes, food and fun.
