Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Remember with your support we can keep our program as one of the elite programs in the country!
We are pleased to report that our team nearly doubled our original goal of selling 100 sweatshirts. The final results are in: our team managed to sell a total of 190 sweatshirts, which at this current time has generated an overall net profit for the team of $3,267. Our initial goal of 100 sweatshirts would have netted roughly $1,500 for the team to use for tournament and travel expenses, so we more than doubled our projected funds raised. Thank you to all family, friends, coworkers, and alumni bowlers for making this a great success!
Our next fundraising effort will take place on Sunday, November 13th at 12:00PM when we host our 30th Annual Alumni Doubles tournament at AMF East Meadow Bowl. More details to follow!
We set our goal at 100 sweatshirt sales, and we're pleased to announce we've blown that goal away. Currently, there are 178 sweatshirts that are sold, and that number is still rising. This will raise in excess of $3,000 for the team's tournament expenses, so thank you very much for your support! We are planning to place the order by next Tuesday, October 18th so there's still time to get one if you're interested.
