Mount Kisco, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2011
On Friday, November 18, Spins Bowl, a new 19-lane bowling alley will be hosting its “Strikes Against Cancer Bowl-A-Thon" fundraiser from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Proceeds from the event will go to Support Connection, a Yorktown Heights-based non-profit organization that has been offering free personalized support programs for people affected by breast and ovarian cancer since 1996.
The goal is to raise $5,000 for Support Connection by the end of the evening. Spins Bowl will be opening its doors inside the 118,000-square-foot Grand Prix New York (GPNY) racing and entertainment facility in Mount Kisco, NY just days before the event, making this Spins Bowl's first charitable fundraiser.
The festivities will include hors d'oeuvres and drinks provided by GPNY's award-winning catering service, 5-lane VIP bowling – which includes TVs and leather furniture, and other prizes.
“Helping those dealing with breast and ovarian cancer is, of course, a very a noble cause,” said Nat Mundy, Vice President, Marketing for Grand Prix New York. “So naturally, Spins Bowl is proud to be taking such an active part in furthering Support Connection's efforts. GPNY has a long, proud tradition in assisting local charities, and now Spins Bowl will carry on that tradition by providing people in the New York City-metro area with an expanded venue and a new form of entertainment in which to organize and attend philanthropic events.”
“We’re very grateful to Spins Bowl for supporting our mission and for hosting our event,” said Katherine Quinn, Executive Director of Support Connection. “The setting is unique and the nature of the event will attract many people. We’re very excited about the ‘Strikes Against Cancer Bowl-A-Thon’ and the support from Spins Bowl and GPNY…we hope they’ll meet and even exceed their $5,000 fundraising goal.”
Since its inception in 2008, GPNY has made 1,200 donations to charity each year in addition to raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for local non-profits by hosting fundraisers for groups such as The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, A-HOME, and The Chappaqua School Foundation, among many others.
