Deadline today to sponsor teams

Published April 26, 2007



Today is the deadline for sponsors of the Arc Nature Coast's annual Bowl-A-Thon, which will be from 4 to 6 p.m. May 5 at Spring Hill Lanes, 3447 Commercial Way.

A $100 team sponsorship provides Bowl-A-Thon T-shirts for a team of five bowlers (all sponsor names will be printed on the back of a minimum of 200 shirts), two games of bowling and shoe rental. Individual and team awards will be presented directly after bowling.

A $100 lane sponsorship provides a large banner on a lane promoting the company or organization, the company's name on the event T-shirt, recognition in the Arc's quarterly newsletter and free membership in the Arc for one year.

Sponsors can assemble their own bowling teams or Arc will provide a team or individual bowlers for teams with fewer than five members.

Bowlers are asked to bring in pledge money of at least $20. A trophy is awarded to the person and to the team bringing in the most money.

For information, call 544-2322, ext. 109.
