20th Greater Midwest Chapter PCMA Charity Bowl-A-Thon
Wednesday, November 6, 2013, 5:00pm – 9:00pm
Lucky Strike Lanes
It’s time to dust off your bowling shoes and clean off your bowling ball – the Greater Midwest Chapter is going bowling!
With the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Destination Henderson and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas as co-sponsors, GMC is planning the 20th 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.).
