The Miss West Sound Scholarship program is holding its first Miracle Bowl fundraiser Feb. 10 at All Star Lanes in Silverdale.
The fundraiser will benefit the scholarship program, and the Children’s Miracle Network and the Caring for Carmen Fund will also receive shares of the proceeds.
The first $250 raised by the event will go to Children’s Miracle Network. All the following proceeds will be equally split between the scholarship program, Children’s Miracle Network, and the Caring for Carmen Fund.
Carmen Garringer, the fund’s beneficiary, is a student at Suquamish Elementary School and princess to Miss West Sound 2012, Hannah Price. Carmen was recently diagnosed with Extraosseous Ewing’s Sarcoma. She is being treated at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
The event will take place in three two-hour sessions: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., 12:15 to 2:15 p.m. and 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The event costs $20 per person to participate and includes both bowling and shoe rental.
Prizes will be awarded to teams based on categories such as, most spirited, highest total score, most strikes, most spares, and even most gutter balls. Items will also be given away in a raffle during each session.
Individuals wishing to participate may enter as a team captain, gathering five other players to form a full team, or as an individual seeking a team with an opening. When registering, individuals must indicate whether they are a team captain or are “looking for a team.”
