FULTON, NY – NRG recently presented a check to Oswego County Opportunities, Inc. in support of the agency’s annual bowling tournament fundraiser, according to Diane Cooper-Currier, executive director at OCO.
“We’re proud to announce that NRG is a ‘Building Dreams’ sponsor for our 2012 OCO Bowl O’Gold,” Cooper-Currier stated.
The company will be sending two bowling teams to participate in the March10 fund raiser at Lakeview Lanes in Fulton.
“We greatly appreciate the continued support and partnership with NRG,” said Cooper-Currier. “They’ve been a considerable advocate of OCO over the years and we are thrilled to have them participate again this year.”
“NRG has been a proud supporter of the OCO bowling fundraiser for many years, and we are looking forward to the festive activities at Bowl O’Gold on March 10,” said Donna Moonan, regional administrator assistant at NRG in Oswego. “We would encourage the community to come out and support OCO, participate in the fun, and cheer on the teams that will be participating.”
OCO chose the theme, “Bowl O’Gold” because this year’s tournament is so close to St. Patrick’s Day.
“We even have a mascot created from an actual bowling pin,” Cooper-Currier said. “Mr. Patty McGold is our traveling leprechaun, and he’ll be visiting several OCO program sites to raise awareness about the many services we offer to the residents of Oswego County.”
Activities take place March 10, starting at noon with the first tier of bowling. There will be door prize drawings, raffles, a silent auction, as well as activities in the adjacent banquet room. The second tier of bowling begins at 3 p.m.
Registration is now open. Five-person teams can sign up and request the tier of their choice, first come first served, now through Feb. 24. Cost is $15 per person.
“We are encouraging teams and individual bowlers to collect pledges also,” Cooper-Currier said. “Every dollar raised makes a difference to the 30,000 people OCO helps each year.”
