Bowl and Make A Difference

Shoulder To Shoulder (STS) will hold its SECOND annual “Bowl-A-Thon” at Rocklin Lanes in Rocklin on Sunday, May 19th from 1:30 to 4:30 to benefit the generationally fatherless young men growing up in Del Paso Heights, where over 70% of youth are fatherless and 50% will graduate from high school.

Our fun filled event will field twenty (20) teams consisting of eight bowlers: a Team Captain and six other bowlers along with a STS mentor or one of our young men. Each team will be sponsored by a company for $1,000 and each team will raise at least $1,000 from the sale of raffle tickets.

Prizes will be awarded for both team and individual bowler averages as well as fund raising accomplishments. Numerous raffle prizes will be awarded with a combined value totaling more than $5,000! Bowlers should encourage their family to come and cheer them on!

Teams will be sought through STS’s Board members, staff, consultants and mentors who will approach their churches to field one or more teams formed from high school, young adults, men’s, women’s, or other church ministries.

Each Team will be sponsored by a company for $1,000. We anticipate this happening by:

  1. STS Board members, staff, consultants and mentors encouraging their church leadership to enter two bowling teams and securing a business owner to sponsor their church teams.
  2. STS Board members, consultants and mentors approaching their employers to become a team Sponsor.
  3. TeamSTS recruiting businesses to Sponsor a team and possibly enter a team(s).

 Sponsoring Companies will receive:

  • Recognition as a sponsor on printed materials
  • Company logo displayed on their team’s two lanes
  • Recognition as a Sponsor on STS’s website

Prizes will be awarded to:

  • The individual with the highest three game average
  • The team with the highest three game average
  • The individual who raised the most support via raffle ticket sales
  • The team which raised the most support via raffle ticket sales

The Bowl-A-Thon will include a raffle for numerous prizes. Tickets will be sold at $5 per ticket.  Team captains and their bowlers will seek to sell raffle tickets to their family, friends, work associates and business colleagues.  Our hope is that each Team will sell at least 200 raffle tickets.  Keep in mind that a prize will be awarded to the team which raised the most funds from their raffle ticket proceeds for STS.

STS expects the raffle prizes may include such things as: 

  • Gourmet dinner for eight prepared in your home, including wine and dessert
  • Guided hike for eight (8) in the mountains surrounding Lake Tahoe
  • ATV for two in the mountains surrounding Lake Tahoe
  • Flight for four to Reno, South Lake Tahoe, Monterey Bay or the Wine country, along with lunch at your place of destination
