By: Nate Haeni
IceHogs Bowl-a-Thon is set for Sunday, March 16 at Cherry Bowl

Rockford, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs announced details today for their 5th Annual Bowl-a-Thon set for Sunday, March 16 at Cherry Bowl in Cherry Valley to help raise money for charity.

Beginning today, fans can sign up to bowl right alongside their favorite IceHogs players, while raising money for the Sydney Ives Foundation. The entire IceHogs team, including players, coaches and front office staff will participate in the event, which will run from 2-4 p.m. at Cherry Bowl, located at 7171 Cherryvale North Blvd.

Admission to the event is $40 per bowler or $150 for a team of four, and that includes two games of bowling, shoe and ball rental, and a raffle ticket for a chance to win some great prizes, for each participant. Groups of four may pick the IceHogs player they wish to bowl with, on a first come, first serve basis, for an additional $50. Otherwise, all players and team personnel will be randomly assigned to a lane. Fans are encouraged to mingle throughout the event to take pictures and get autographs from their favorite players.

The first 100 bowlers, or 25 teams, to register for the charity bowling event will be guaranteed to bowl with an IceHogs player, coach, or other team personnel.

Registration for the IceHogs Bowl-A-Thon can be done at any IceHogs home game at the BMO Harris Bank Center by stopping by the U.S. Cellular Fan Zone. Fans can also register by calling the IceHogs Communications Department at (815) 847-6381 or by downloading the entry form here and mailing it in to the IceHogs Front Office – 300 Elm St. Rockford, IL 61101. Entry forms may also be emailed to icehogs@icehogs.com. The event is expected to sell-out for the fifth straight time and the deadline to register is Friday, March 7 at 5 p.m.

The event will also feature a 50/50 and premium raffle. The premium raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each or five for $20 at the event and will feature prizes courtesy of the IceHogs and other sponsors. Some prizes for all the raffles, premium and regular, include: Blackhawks tickets, Stan Mikita autographed jersey, a game-worn IceHogs jersey, an IceHogs team signed hockey stick, IceHogs club lounge tickets, and much more.

Fans that aren’t interested in bowling can still join the fun by purchasing a $10 general admission ticket which will include access to the event for photos and autographs, along with a regular raffle ticket.

If you have any questions regarding the IceHogs Bowl-A-Thon, contact the IceHogs Communications Department at (815) 847-6381 or icehogs@icehogs.com.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Sydney Ives Foundation. The Sydney Ives Foundation is a nonprofit charitable organization which focuses on helping families in the fight for the life of their ill child.

The foundation is in memory of Sydney Ives. Ives was made an honorary IceHogs team member on May 20, 2009 after she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor the year prior. She passed away on Nov. 7, 2009.
