Team slots filling up quickly for ‘Lucky 13’ Bowl-A-Fun

Fulton, NY – Only a few openings remain for bowling teams to participate in the “Lucky 13” Bowl-A-Fun on April 13, at Lakeview Lanes in Fulton, This is the 12th annual fund-raising bowling tournament hosted by Oswego County Opportunities.

Call 598-4717 to register your five-person team. The only openings are on the second flight, which takes place from 3 to 5:30 p.m.

Deadline to register is April 3.

If you don’t have a complete team you can call and have your name placed on a list of available bowlers, and OCO will do its best to assign you to a team.

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!” OCO Executive Director Diane Cooper-Currier said.

The “Lucky 13” Bowl-A-Fun takes place from noon – 6 p.m. at Lakeview Lanes in Fulton.

Registration is now open for five-person teams, 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 said. “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: more than $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.”

In addition to support for existing services, OCO will set aside a percentage of the “Lucky 13” Bowl-A-Fun proceeds to build financial resources for the future.

“There is a vision for a homeless shelter in Oswego County,” Cooper-Currier said. “As the community action agency for Oswego County, we strongly support this vision because it aligns perfectly with OCO’s mission.”
