NOW GET OUT THERE AND BOWL! 


In person bowling:

Anytime in the month of October, take your team to a bowling alley. We love Roseland Bowl in Canandaigua. They have hosted our event in the past, they love Home Start Hope and really go out of their way to make our event successful and ensure that everyone has fun. Let’s pay them back by choosing Roseland! They sure could use it after being closed for so long!

If your team is planning to go this route and bowl at Roseland, let us know and we’ll arrange to have you and your teammates receive a Home Start Hope t-shirt that you can wear while you bowl. Be sure you take lots of pictures and post them on social media. Use the hash tag #BowlforHope. At the end of your game, take a picture of your completed score board and email it to: Kristin at mathis@homestarthope.org. The team with the highest score will receive a great prize! 

Online bowling:

You have the option of getting your team together to play online or just play on your own. There are lots of great, free games on Apple & Google Play, we like Bowl 3D Extreme. Many even have a Pass & Play feature that allows up to 4 people to play together. Practice makes perfect with these games! Simply take a screenshot of your final, best game and send it to Kristin @ mathis@homestarthope.org. We’ll have prizes for the highest team and individual scores! 

We can’t do what we do without YOU! 

At the end of October we will announce the teams and individuals who have raised the most money, as well as the individual who was the most social. We will have great prizes for all of those top achievers! Be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook page for all those details.
