The entry fee is $20 and includes three games and shoe rental. Four- or five-person teams may sign up, or individuals may sign up and be assigned to a short-handed team. The Bowl-a-thon is the alumni group's major fundraiser in the spring, and the proceeds support the society's scholarship and campus projects. Lane sponsorships are available for $50 and $100. John Spadaro, board member of the society and Bowl-a-thon chairman, has written an open letter to alumni and friends of Penn State, encouraging participation in the Advent event.

Open letter to alumni and friends from Alle-Kiski Society Bowl-a-thon chair

The Alle-Kiski Society of the Penn State Alumni Association represents more than 7,000 alumni living in the Alle-Kiski Valley. Our mission is to represent all current and former students and friends of Penn State through interaction and service to improve the New Kensington campus and the University. The society develops, promotes and supports the campus and enhances communication between students, alumni, friends, and the University. We are responsible for the development of programs, both educational and recreational, to further strengthen our relationship with the campus.

As a way of raising funds, the society is sponsoring our 12th annual Bowl-a-thon from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 30, 2014, at the Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell. We are asking you to support this event by sponsoring a lane. As a $50 lane sponsor, your company’s name will be prominently displayed during the event, and you will be included in the event program that each bowler will receive. As a $100 lane sponsor, in addition, you will be included in live announcements throughout the event, on the campus website and newswire service.

Proceeds from the Bowl-a-thon support our campus scholarship and special projects. In the past four years we have donated nearly $45,000 to the campus. We made a $10,000 gift to campus athletics for equipment for the cardiovascular fitness room and increased our scholarship endowment by $34,000, from $51,000 to $85,000. For the current academic year, the society awarded $3,600 in scholarships to three campus students -- Joshua Swinehart of Spring Church; Jennifer Phillips of Vandergrift; and Caitlyn Cody of Leechburg. In addition, we co-sponsored the reception at the annual Academic and Student Achievement Awards ceremony for $2,000, and donated $2,000 to THON.

As you can see, Penn State New Kensington students are the beneficiaries of the Bowl-a-thon proceeds. If you are interested in supporting this event, please complete the online form and mail it to:
