In 2013, Phoenix’s ICM Food & Clothing Bank served more than 118,000 of the Valley’s neediest families and individuals. Instead of just asking for people to write checks to help continue its cause, ICM is making it a little more fun—and competitive—with its annual Hungerbowl fundraising event.
Hungerbowl will take place 12-4 p.m. Sunday, May 4, at Let It Roll Bowl, 8925 N. 12th St. The event will include bowling, prizes, a DJ, goody bags and a raffle. Adults and children of all ages will enjoy the afternoon while helping to raise funds for ICM.
How it works is a team captain finds four friends and/or relatives to form a team, and each member pays a $20 registration fee. Next, the bowlers are asked to find some pledges from other family and community members. It could be a per-pin pledge (i.e. 10 cents a pin, and the bowler scores 180, so that’s $18), or just a set donation amount, such as $10.
After registering, the team captain will be contacted with an assigned time to show up and bowl. Individuals who want to participate but don’t have a team will be put on a team with other single bowlers.
There will be prizes for the highest game bowled, the most pledges brought in, and other fun categories.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be used to purchase healthy food and snacks for families in need. For more information and to participate, call Abby Loza at 602-403-3577, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.icmaz.org.
