ROCKFORD, Ill. – A limited number of lanes for the Bowl-a-Thon are still available for purchase. Registration is $50 per bowler or $175 for a team of four, which includes two games of bowling, shoe and ball rental and a raffle ticket for a chance to win a variety of great prizes. To reserve a lane, call (815) 986-6465.
IceHogs players, coaches and team personnel will be at Cherry Bowl on SUNDAY, MARCH 3 from 2-4 p.m. to bowl (please note the time change from 1-3 to 2-4 p.m.) with fans and raise money for the IceHogs Charitable Foundation. A portion of the afternoon’s proceeds will also benefit Brovember, Inc., a local nonprofit that raises awareness about prostate cancer and men’s health. The IceHogs have partnered with Brovember, Inc. and named the organization the primary benefactor of the Bowl-A-Thon fundraiser for each of the last two years.
Brovember, Inc. has developed numerous initiatives to raise funds for cancer research and help establish local healthcare programs. Along with its successful “beard-a-thon” fundraiser each November, the organization also recently expanded its outreach to create a Brovember U.S. Endowment with the University of Illinois College of Medicine.
Groups of four may also upgrade their Bowl-A-Thon package for an additional $50 to guarantee their party bowls with an IceHogs player. Groups who purchase the upgrade will be entered into a lottery to determine which IceHogs player they will be paired with for the event. Group registration to bowl with an IceHogs player is limited to 20 teams, and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Fans interested in attending the event, but not participating in bowling, can take advantage of $10 viewing tickets. Each viewing ticket will grant the purchaser access to the event, along with a raffle ticket. The viewing tickets can be purchased either in advance or at the door at the event.
In addition to bowling, this year’s fundraiser will also feature both a 50/50 drawing and premium-prize raffle. Premium tickets will be sold for $5 each (or $20 for five tickets), and prizes include Chicago Blackhawks tickets, a game-worn IceHogs jersey, a suite for an IceHogs game, Club Lounge tickets to an IceHogs home game, an IceHogs team-signed stick and many more great prizes.
