Annual Bowlathon for youth assistance

FERNDALE- The annual Ferndale Youth Assistance Bowl-A-Thon will be held Oct. 30, from 1 – 4 p.m. at Luxury Lanes, 600 E Nine Mile. The event is described by organizers as “one of the two most important fundraisers each year” for Ferndale Youth Assistance, a charitable program that works with the schools, the local district courts, parents and city and county government to assist youth with a variety of programs.
“Ferndale Youth Assistance is a great local grass roots program that is critical in supporting our youth who will become the leaders of tomorrow. Especially in these tough economic times, any help we can provide is an investment toward a better future for us all,” said Craig Covey, Oakland County Commissioner and newly appointed FYA board president.
Funds raised help FYA help many programs for the students and families of the Ferndale School District including counseling, student enrichment scholarships, camp scholarships and more.
Teams of bowlers can form and solicit pledges and donations for FYA. Individuals may also attend and will be assigned to teams. Each bowler is asked to raise a minimum of $50 in pledges, which will provide each bowler 3 games of bowling, shoe rental, food and beverages.
There are also prizes that will be raffled off.
Persons interested in bowling, volunteering for this event or making a donation may contact Melinda Hicks at 248-586-8700.
