200 bowlers will enjoy a blast from the past as they try their luck on the lanes and raise money to fight hunger at the “Retro Bowl.”  Oswego County Opportunities’ 13th annual bowling tournament fundraiser takes place on April 5, at Lakeview Lanes in Fulton.

“This year’s event was dubbed the ‘Retro Bowl’ so we could take a trip through time and enjoy the fads, fun and fashion of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and more!” said Diane Cooper-Currier, OCO’s executive director. “We’re very grateful to NRG for their generous support. As a ‘Building Dreams’ sponsor, they are demonstrating a significant investment in OCO services that make a difference in the lives of more than 20,000 individuals each year.”

The OCO Retro Bowl takes place from noon – 6 p.m.

Openings remain for five-person teams, with choice of flights: noon – 2:30 p.m. or 3 – 5:30 p.m. (first come, first served).

Team registration is $100. Businesses and individuals are invited to donate door prizes for the raffles and silent auction, and major sponsors are being solicited as well.

In addition to support for existing services, OCO will set aside a percentage of the Retro Bowl proceeds to build financial resources for the future.

“As the community action agency for Oswego County, we strongly support and assist with efforts to fight hunger, because it aligns perfectly with OCO’s mission,” Cooper-Currier said.
