Attached are forms and information on the 7th Annual “Partnership For Kids” Bowling Tournament. In addition to the regular trophies given out we will once again have a “Team Theme Award”. This was very popular last year. We will be expanding this award to a 1st,2nd and 3rd prize for the team’s with the best team theme.
Many of you also take part in the “Pins for Partnership” program in raising donations for the hospitals. I major award for this is given out at the Annual Convention. The donations and sponsorship helped raise over $3000.00 last year.
Before the creation of the cell phone the easiest way to contact someone was by public telephone. The cost of a call was 10 cents. Thus, the expression dropping a dime on someone was started. Let me give you an example on how far a dime can go.
If each member on your team averaged 50 points a game, and each member on the team had one person “Drop A Dime” on them that would be $75.00 a team. Last year we had 23 teams so that would be $1725.00 . Now if each bowler could find just five (5) people to drop that dime we could raise an amazing $8625.00. It is that easy. I know a lot of you work hard each year in getting sponsorships and outside donations and we hope that will continue this year. Remember it is just ALL FOR THE KIDS.
Last year we went over the $100,000.00 mark in total monies raised for the “Partnership for Kids” program since the inception of the program. Let’s continue this great tradition and help support those children who benefit from this great program.
