Bowling benefit for hospital

Benefit sponsored by Fort Community Credit Union

(Published Jan. 22, 2007, 10:38 a.m.)

Fort Community Credit Union and the Wisconsin South Central Chapter of Credit Unions will hold their Fourth Annual Children's Miracle Network Bowl-A-Thon Feb. 10 to raise money for the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

The event will again be held at Blackbridge Bowl in Janesville, 1-4:30 p.m. The entire day's events, including discounted bowling, free pizza, soda, door prizes and a silent auction, is open to the public. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to this family event.

Hourly raffles will be conducted, giving away prizes donated from numerous local businesses and organizations. Both SCCCU and CMN are non-profit organizations. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to Children's Hospital. Over $25,000 has been raised during the first three bowl-a-thons.

Thousands of children from Wisconsin, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, northern Illinois and beyond are treated at Children's Hospital regardless of race, creed or ability to pay for services.

Anyone wishing to bowl must register prior to the event ASAP as last year's event quickly sold out with the maximum of 144 bowlers.

A $25 registration fee covers the cost of three games, shoes, ball rental and all-you-can-eat pizza and soda.

Registration forms are available at any FCCU in Whitewater, Fort Atkinson or Jefferson as well as Blackbridge Bowl, 1141 Blackbridge Road, Janesville, (608) 757-3030. Bowlers are asked to collect pledges from friends and family before the event.

Prizes will be available for various levels of donation collection with a grand prize drawing of $500 for all who collect $100 or more.

Companies or individuals wishing to donate or become a sponsor may call (920) 563-7305 ext. 109 or ext. 130 or e-mail or
