Pink Goes Red Bowling Event

Cardiovascular disease claims the lives of more than 500,000 American women each year, yet women are not paying attention. In fact, many even dismiss it as an “older man's disease.” To dispel the myth of heart disease as the No. 1 killer of women, the American Heart Association, along with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute created National Wear Red Day® to raise awareness of this critical issue.

To recognize National Wear Red Day®, the Lambda Alpha Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® is hosting a Pink Goes Red bowling outing on Friday, February 1, 2013 at Pinstripes in Oakbrook, IL. Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy bowling, food and raffles to help raise awareness for women’s heart health; raffle proceeds will go directly to the American Heart Association.

Again, event is open to all-female and male. The only condition is that you wear red!


• A couple of lanes have been reserved for a 2-hour time slot (7:30-9:30). Those wanting to bowl will get to do so on a first-come first served basis on the reserved lanes. My chapter was able to negotiate a discount, so the cost will be $5 CASH.

• If you’re not able to make this time slot, or if for some reason the reserved lanes are full, you/we can also reserve lanes (onsite or by calling in advance). The cost will be $7 per game.

• Shoe rental is $4; all guests are responsible for their food and drink.

I’d strongly suggest bringing cash for bowling and shoes (and of course if you desire to try your luck in our raffle-proceeds will go to the American Heart Association).

Additionally, we’ll be collecting school supplies to donate to needy children (notebooks, 3-ring binders and scissors).

See you soon!
