Bowling event to support education, literacy

TERRE HAUTE — Bowl your way to an afternoon of fun and prizes while promoting education and literacy for people in West Terre Haute and surrounding communities.

Keep the Ball Rolling bowling fundraiser is set for 1 to 8 p.m. June 23 in the Terre Haute Bowling Center at 600 E. Springhill Drive. The fundraiser will benefit Educational/Family Services in West Terre Haute, a ministry of the Sisters of Providence which provides free tutoring to children and free basic education and GED preparation for adults.

Cost is $15 per person and includes two games of bowling and shoe rental. Groups may sign up in teams of six or as individuals who will be assigned a team. Drawings for door prizes and raffles will take place throughout the afternoon.

All proceeds will benefit Educational/Family Services, one of the only places in the West Terre Haute area where people can turn for help with literacy, one-on-one homework help and tutoring. EFS assistance is offered free of charge, so volunteers and funding are always needed to help meet the educational needs of the community.

For more information about the bowling fundraiser or to register to bowl, contact EFS director Penny Sullivan at 812-535-4206 or
