10th Anniversary Bowling for Scholars
Lights! Camera! Action!
The 10th annual Bowling for Scholars is set for 3 to 5 p.m. Friday, April 11, at Tropicana Lanes, 7960 Clayton Road in Richmond Heights.
Get your cast and crew together for an exciting afternoon of bowling. The cost is $25 per person, $125 for a five-person team and includes ball and shoe rental and an “A-list” commemorative T-shirt. For just $250, your team will receive the red-carpet treatment as a Superteam. Online registration is available.
For a shot at fame and fortune, enter the Bowling Pin Decorating Contest. You could win up to $125. Deadline for submission is April 1. Pick up your bowling pin at the campus bookstore, Foundation office or Continuing Education office at the Corporate College. Students can pick up free bowling pins to decorate - a $5 donation is suggested for all others.
Once your pin is decorated, submit your masterpiece for screening. The pin with the best visual effects will be selected by students and staff at each location, and will be awarded a $25 bookstore gift certificate.
All decorated pins will premier online on the Bidding for Good website beginning March 24 and at the Bowling for Scholars event April 11.
The pin that has the best box office return through online bids and money raised at the Bowling for Scholars event will win the grand prize of a $100 bookstore gift certificate.
