Bowlers to Help Local Organizations with Scholarships at Upcoming Fundraiser

Delaware, Ohio September 18, 2017 – Two local organizations have joined together to host the Delaware Buckeyes United – Bowling for Scholarships to be held on Sunday, October 8th at Delaware Lanes, 536 Sunbury Road, Delaware. Bowlers can register online at www.delawarebuckeyes.org.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit Delaware County students with scholarships towards secondary school. The scholarship programs are offered through the two organizations hosting the fundraiser, the OSU Alumni Club of Delaware County and the United Way of Delaware County, Women’s Leadership Network (WLN).

The OSU Alumni Club of Delaware County has given six scholarships, with the latest awarded for this Autumn Semester to students attending The Ohio State University. The United Way of Delaware County, Women’s Leadership Network is in its infancy of offering scholarships to students who will be attending vocational or technical secondary schools.

“We are very excited to receive a donation to the newly established WLN scholarship from this fundraiser, which will be used to seed the program,” said Michele Savoldi, Director of Corporate Engagement.

The price is $15/person and includes two games, shoes and a large pizza. The goal is to have six bowlers on each lane. Groups who can bring six bowlers will receive a discounted rate of $12.50/person (use the discount code of TEAMOF6 during the online registration). Eugene Perry, President of the OSU Delaware Alumni Club says, “this will be a fun inexpensive fundraiser so families can afford to participate and it is open to the public”.

There will be prizes for all bowling skill levels as well as a silent auction and 50/50 raffle. There will be a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle too. Bowlers are encouraged to come in costumes, with a prize for the most creative costume.
