National Grid sponsors OCO Bowl-A-Fun


Fulton, NY – National Grid is a ‘Building Dreams’ sponsor for the annual Bowl-A-Fun fund raiser for Oswego County Opportunities.

“We greatly appreciate this generous, continued support and partnership with National Grid,” said Diane Cooper-Currier, OCO executive director. “They’ve been a considerable advocate of OCO over the years and we are thrilled to have them participate again this year.”

This year’s event was dubbed the “Lucky 13” Bowl-A-Fun because it is taking place on 4-13-13. “Thirteen is usually associated with superstition and bad luck, but we’re turning that around and making it a lucky day, with many chances to win raffles, door prizes, silent auction items, and more!”  Cooper-Currier stated.

The “Lucky 13” Bowl-A-Fun takes place from noon – 6:00 pm at Lakeview Lanes in Fulton. Registration fee is $75 per five-person team, with choice of flights: noon – 2:30 p.m. or 3  – 5:30 p.m. (first come, first served).

Businesses and individuals are invited to donate door prizes for the raffles and silent auction, and major sponsors are being solicited as well.

“If you can’t participate in our activities on April 13, you can still help,” Cooper-Currier continued. “We are accepting pledges from the community towards the event, and we are also selling raffle tickets at $5 each or 3 for $13. We have three great prizes: Over $400 worth of camping gear, a getaway for two to Vernon Downs Casino, and a dinner cruise for two on Skaneateles Lake or the Erie Canal. Call 598-4717 to get tickets.”

Also, everyone is encouraged to bring at least one non-perishable food item and/or a personal care item for OCO to distribute to the homeless.

In addition, there will be a chicken barbecue in the parking lot, live acoustic music in the lounge, a silent auction and 50-50 raffle, a “beat the celebrity bowler” contest, and fun activities for children.

For registration or sponsor information, or to donate a door prize, contact OCO at 598-4717 or visit the agency’s website at www.oco.org
