Lane sponsorships for our upcoming “Bowling for Veterans” fundraiser are going well, thanks to immediate support from club members. Now, all we have to do is sell some $100 sponsorships to outside organizations to help spread the word.
April Dowd started it off several weeks ago by pledging a sponsorship, quickly followed by Melissa Bill with two lanes for her First Niagara Bank. And now, President Terry Brewer, who is coordinating the event with Murray Forth, reports that Stewart Wagner has pledged sponsorship of two lanes, and Terry and Geoff Brewer are sponsoring one together.
That means $600 in sponsorships — six lanes — have been secured. We have 16 reserved lanes, but we can have multiple sponsors for any of them, so don’t relax under the assumption we’re limited.
If you haven’t already done so, please pick up a sponsorship form from Murray and pitch in to sell them to any interested parties. Also, please be sure to circulate event flyers any way you can — postings, social media, e-mail, etc.
And remember, we need help for the day of the event to staff the registration and information table: Sunday, November 8, at the East Greenbush Bowling Center on Columbia Turnpike, opposite Quigley’s. The shifts are 12:30 to 3:30 and 3 to 5 p.m.
Please see Terry or Murray if you can lend a hand. We need to get all members involved in one way or another, large or small, with all Rotary activities.
