It’s April, which means it’s time to start thinking about – bowling! The Greater Midwest Chapter of PCMA, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Destination Henderson and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, are sponsoring the 2013 Annual Bowl-A-Thon Charity Fundraiser. The popular chapter event, which raises funds for our designated charity, is scheduled for Wednesday, November 6 at 5 p.m. at Lucky Strike in downtown Chicago. We need your help! The Silent Auction is an important part of our fundraising effort as 95% of auction proceeds go directly to our designated charity, OFF THE STREET CLUB.

Based on survey results, our members are looking for creative packages with a minimum value of $75. LET’S THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX THIS YEAR! While we appreciate the standard hotel night stay – let’s pair something with it (hotel restaurant, spa, theatre tickets, airport transportation and airfare to distant destination) to raise more money for our charity.

Sample Donation Ideas:
  • Family passes to theatres, museums, zoos, theme parks
  • Jewelry, artwork, pottery classes, jewelry making classes
  • Cooking classes, cookware, cookbooks
  • Golf tee times, private golf lessons, golf and sportswear, golf clubs
  • Things for the kids! (Birthday cake certificates, hotel suite to host a party, movie tickets)
  • Things for the pets! (Grooming gift certificate, doggy bed, dog-walking services)
  • Autographed sports paraphernalia
  • Tickets to sporting events paired with a hotel stay
  • Gift certificates to local shops and restaurants
Please submit a realistic value with your donation and for your hotel and travel packages. Include criteria for using donated certificates (expiration dates, blackout dates, etc.).

If you are interested in making a donation to the Silent Auction, please fill out the donation form and send it with your prize letter or certificate by Friday, October 11, 2013 to:
