Go bowling for neighborhood food banks

By Heidi Eng
Grab your favorite bowling shirt and lace up your shoes. Solid Ground (formerly the Fremont Public Association) is looking for teams to participate in their annual Strike Out Hunger Bowl-a-thon at West Seattle Bowl (4505 39th Ave SW) on Saturday, March 27. The event hopes to raise money and awareness for the group’s Food Security for Children program, which keeps Seattle-area food banks (including Ballard, Greenwood, Phinney Ridge Lutheran and the Wallingford Family Works food banks) stocked with formula and healthy baby food for infants and toddlers.
March 19 is the deadline for teams of four to six to register. Individuals are also welcome to sign up. Registration and pledge forms can be found online here. Each bowler who raises $200 or more in tax-deductible donations receives a special prize. Start times are at 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information on the event, contact Anna Ramos at 206-694-6857 or [email protected].
