BENCHS Bowling Tournament

Important Update! Our generous bunch of Free Thinkers has already exceeded our goal...we have $325 already in the bank for BENCHS! We have one SMART Team bowling at noon on the 17th. Remember...the goal is to raise as much as possible with a trophy for the top donation group!! So, whether bowling, joining the cheering squad or just supporting from afar, don't be afraid to kick in a little $$$!

Renee and Jeremy are setting up a logo on cafepress that we plan to use for bowling and/or ID shirts. The SMART coffee group decided on RED as a color and will be individually ordering their shirts from Cafepress. I will post a notice as soon as the logo is in place.

We have all of the bowlers needed for the team, so RSVPS are closed- please see the event for the Beer/Cheer Squad to still come help and support our team!

Hello all! The group is looking to organize a bowling team for the 4th Annual BENCHS Bowling Tournament/Fundraiser. (BENCHS is a no-kill shelter serving Blue Earth/Nicollet County. Think of the kitties and puppies and other adorable critters!!)

Please join and discuss here if you are interested in participating!

      Thanks for the info, Walt, I will be making my donation asap- I have a question- how many people do you need for the bowling team? There are at least a couple of people interested on the Facebook group. For anyone who can't be on the team, I am planning to organize a beer drinking/fundraising/che­erleading party in the bar where we will be collecting free will donations with some balloon animals that Becky will make for us to use as cute bribes for donations for BENCHS.

      The sign up asks for 5 member teams; however, we can certainly field more than one team! More bowlers, more fun, more $$upport!

    I looked into making an indiegogo campaign to solicit donations, but they take out a big chunk and require you to know the 501(c)3 number for the organization you are raising funds for. We best do it the old fashioned way by check or cash. Either that, or have someone with a paypal account collect funds.

    I will not be bowling, but would like to make a donation to the team, so let me know how to do that!
