UPPER BURRELL, Pa. — The Alle-Kiski Society's 14th annual Bowlathon is set for 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 13, at Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell.

Hosted by the local society of the Penn State Alumni Association, the tournament is open to alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends of Penn State. The entry fee is $20 and includes three games and shoe rental. Four- or five-person teams may sign up or individuals may sign up and be assigned to a short-handed team.

The Bowlathon is the alumni group's major fundraiser in the spring, and the proceeds support the society’s endowed scholarship at the campus. The endowment has risen from $51,000 to $109,000 in the past six years. Event sponsorships are available for $250 and $500, and lane sponsorships are $50 and $100 (see below).

The following is an open letter to alumni and friends from Alle-Kiski Society Bowlathon chair John Spadaro:

The Alle-Kiski Society of the Penn State Alumni Association represents more than 7,000 alumni living in the Alle-Kiski Valley. Our mission is to represent all current and former students and friends of Penn State through interaction and service to improve the New Kensington campus and the University. The society develops, promotes and supports the campus and enhances communication between students, alumni, friends and the University. We are responsible for the development of programs, both educational and recreational, to strengthen our relationship with the campus.

As a way of raising funds, the society is sponsoring our 14th annual Bowlathon from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, March 13, at Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell. We are asking you to support this event by sponsoring a lane or by becoming an event sponsor. There are various levels of sponsorships for you to help support our event. The levels vary from $50-$500.

The $500 event sponsorship features the company name on the event sponsorship board and bowling alley scoring monitors as well as live announcements throughout the day. In addition, the event sponsor receives a half-page ad in the program and the Penn State New Kensington website, and four free bowling registrations. The $250 event sponsorship includes the company name on the event sponsorship board and bowling alley scoring monitors, live announcements, a quarter-page ad in the program and the campus website, and two free bowling registrations.

As a $100 lane sponsor, you will be included in live announcements throughout the event, on the campus website and newswire subscription service. As a $50 lane sponsor, your company’s name will be prominently displayed during the event, and you will be included in the event program.

Proceeds from the Bowlathon support our campus scholarship, whose endowment has risen to $109,000. In the past five years we have donated more than $60,000 to the campus.

For the current academic year, the society awarded a record $5,500 in scholarships to four campus students: Lynsie Headley of Ford City; Alissa Dolensky of Lower Burrell; Adis Juklo of Pittsburgh; and Carley Carnahan of Lower Burrell.

As you can see, Penn State New Kensington students are the beneficiaries of the Bowlathon proceeds. If you are interested in supporting this event, please complete the form below and mail it to: John Spadaro, 508 Greenridge Road, New Kensington, PA 15068.

Sincerely,

John
