It’s Time to Bowl, Bowl, Bowl!


Dear Friends,

I am writing with an odd request—as a member of HOMECorp’ s board, I have been asked to form a Shomrei bowling team for one of HOMECorp’ s most energetic fundraisers—a BOWL-A-Thon.  It’s a corny and fun event and it raises a good deal of money for the agency. What I need are 6 courageous bowlers who are willing to spend Sunday afternoon, January 26 at Eagle Rock Lanes!  The entry fee is $100 per bowler or $600 per team.  The fee includes shoes and snacks.  And if you can’t bowl, will you be a sponsor?  More details below…and many thanks to all of you!

Here’s what to do if you want to be on the team which I have named Shomrei’s Swingers:

  • Find some friends and join together—we need 6 bowlers at minimum—more are always welcome!
  • Write back to me with your name and shoe size.  I will register you on line; bring your check or credit card to the bowling ally
  • If you want to be a sponsor and not bowl, you can donate to HOMECorp on line or send me a check made out to HOMECorp  And there are prizes for best costumes—Purim comes early!!
