Indiana Members Credit Union (IMCU) is hosting its fourth annual Bowl-A-Thon employee fundraising event to benefit the Indiana Members Foundation from noon to 4:30 p.m. Jan. 15 at Expo Bowl in Indianapolis.
There will be 400 bowlers, filling two flights of 80 lanes.
Features of the day will include a special appearance by Indiana Pacers mascot Boomer from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., pictures by caricature artists, and more than 90 door prizes. Each bowler will receive two games and shoes. In addition, a team award for “best decorated T-shirt” will be awarded.
The Indiana Members Foundation was founded in 2010 by Indiana Members Credit Union employees and volunteers for the purpose of being a positive influence in the community, specifically providing school children in the Indianapolis area with the necessary essentials for learning and succeeding in their education.
“The lanes for our event sold out in record time this year, which is extremely exciting,” Mandy Emery with IMCU said in a press release. “Our CEO, Ron Collier, always challenges us to fill all 80 lanes before the event and I am happy to say we were able to do so almost a month prior to the event. Our 2012 fundraising goal ... is to raise enough funds to provide 3,500 backpacks, filled with supplies, and 500 school uniforms, belts and shoes, to school children in the Indianapolis area, and we are well on our way to hitting that goal.”
