FULTON, NY – Every day families and individuals of all ages find themselves in crisis situations with nowhere to turn.
It might be a neighbor that lost their job and cannot find work; a family down the road that doesn’t have food for dinner; a young adult that doesn’t know where he or she will sleep tonight; or perhaps someone who can’t get a job or further their education due to lack of transportation.
When all hope seems lost, Oswego County Opportunities is there to help. OCO provides a wide range of services that can address any number of crisis situations. From providing emergency food and shelter to assistance with family issues, OCO can help diffuse crisis situations and help families and individuals get their life back on track.
To ensure that these services remain available OCO is hosting its largest and most exciting fundraiser of the year, the Rodeo Bowl.
To be held April 18 at Lakeview Lanes in Fulton OCO’s Rodeo Bowl bowling tournament, featuring a western theme, promises to be a heap of fun for the whole family.
“The Rodeo Bowl is more than just a bowling tournament,” said OCO Executive Director Diane Cooper-Currier. “It’s an afternoon filled with western themed games and activities, stick horse races, and more. We invite community members to break out their boots and cowboy hats, roundup a team, and join us for a good time for a good cause.”
Proceeds from OCO’s Rodeo Bowl will benefit OCO’s crisis services, which provide vital assistance to Oswego County residents finding themselves in various crisis situations.
Additionally a portion of the Rodeo Bowl proceeds will be used to build financial resources for the future as the need for services continues to increase throughout Oswego County.
The OCO Rodeo Bowl offers five-person teams two flights to choose from: noon to 2:30 p.m. (almost full!) or 3 – 5 p.m.
Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
Additionally, chicken BBQ dinners will be available from 1:30 p.m. until sold out ($8 for half chicken, roll, and two sides).
For registration or sponsor information, or to donate a door prize, contact OCO at (315) 598-4717 or visit www.oco.org
