St. Matthew Knights of Columbus to host bowl-a-thon
The Knights of Columbus at St. Matthew Catholic Church will host Pins for Priests Bowl-a-thon on Saturday, April 26, at 9:30 a.m. at the AMF Carolina Lanes in Matthews.
Kids, teens, couples, families and groups are invited to participate in the event, which will benefit St. Matthew seminarians and priests with educational expenses and daily needs. The goal is for each bowler to raise at least $100 through pledges for their total pins bowled in three games, so sponsors should pledge a few cents per pin, according to a news release.
Participants in the event also will receive a T-shirt, and the event also will feature door prizes and a silent auction. The church still needs donations of gift cards and other silent auction items. Businesses and professional sponsors can donate $125 to $500 for business name recognition on the sponsor poster, program booklet, back of T-shirts and lane signage.
