MTI – YSOSW Briarpatch Youth Shelter Bowl-A-Thon Fundraiser


Download 8×11 Flyer!

MTI is hosting a Bowl-A-Thon for MTI Members and other interested participants on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at Dream Lanes in Madison (tentatively 12 – 3 PM)The Bowl-A-Thon will raise funds for the Briarpatch Youth Shelter via Youth Services of Southern Wisconsin (YSOSW).  MTI Members working in the Transition Education Program have worked with YSOSW to help bring this shelter to fruition.  The Bowl-A-Thon idea was inspired by MTI Member Karlton Porter, as an opportunity for MTI Members to socialize and have some fun outside of the hectic school day.  The MTI PR Committee agreed and thought that it would be a great opportunity to support an important cause.

The Bowl-A-Thon is seeking support from local businesses!  If you know of someone who has a small business or who works for a large one, consider asking for their support for this event.  Sponsorship information can be found at the following links:

Due to an awesome show of support for this event we have run out lanes to ensure that additional teams will have an opportunity to bowl 3 games. 

We still need volunteer help if you have some time and would like to join us.  And, of course, this is a social event so please join us at Dream Lanes if you can.  You may have a chance to bowl later in the event but we cannot guarantee that at this time.
