Locals are invited to bowl with and get to know Aberdeen’s emergency responders, all while supporting community programs.
Aberdeen PBA 163’s inaugural Bowl-A-Thon fundraiser promises to bring the community together on Sunday, Jan. 12 at Strathmore Lanes for hours family-friendly fun, according to organizer Frank Maisano.
“We really would love to see members of the community come meet us in a relaxed social environment,” he said, noting that oftentimes residents only encounter members of law enforcement when problems arise.
The all-you-can-bowl event runs from 2 to 5 p.m. and costs $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 12 and under.
When open bowling concludes at 5 p.m., everyone is encouraged to stay for the Mayor’s Cup Bowling Challenge between Aberdeen’s fire companies, police department and public works.
Maisano said the tournament is poised to become the winter equivalent of the Mayor’s Trophy softball contest between those organizations at Aberdeen Day.
“We wanted to create that same atmosphere inside, and bowling was a no-brainer,” Maisano said.
In addition to bowling, attractions for children, door prizes, and raffles are planned. The money raised during the event will go toward funding Aberdeen PBA community programs.
“We support anything in the community that we can,” Maisano said.
