The Greene Community Health Foundation is “glowing” with excitement over an upcoming event for families looking for a little fun this month. 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!
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, great music, raffles, food and fun. In addition, a Strike Jackpot (ages 18+ only) will be held with chances to win cold, hard cash! Some of the raffle prizes include a Tiffany necklace, passes to Rave Motion Pictures at The Greene, a $100 gift card to the Mall at Fairfield Commons, tickets to a Wright State University basketball game and much more.
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. The cost is $25.00 each for ages 13 and older and just $15.00 each for ages 12 and younger. 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. Registrations will be accepted until 4pm on Wednesday, January 18th.
Groups of 10 or more are asked to call ahead for special rates. If you are interested in registering, please contact Laurie Fox at 937-374-5669, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website for a registration form at www.gcchd.org.
