The Tukwila Rotary Club's annual fundraiser for Tukwila Pantry, the 2012 Let's Strike Out Hunger Bowlathon, is Saturday, March 24.
The event typically raises about $10,000 for the food bank, which serves the residents of Tukwila, SeaTac, Burien and Boulevard Park.
"Food is a very basic need," said Gallaway. "With the times of today, more and more people are utilizing the food pantry."
The morning of casual bowling fun is 10 a.m.-noon at ACME Bowl, 100 Andover Park W., Tukwila. Bowler check-in begins at 9:45 a.m.
Prizes are awarded for bowlers and teams who raise the most money for Tukwila Pantry.
Tukwila Rotary has room for bowlers – teams of four or individuals – to participate. There is a minimum donation of $50 per bowler.
Bowlers must sign up in advance no later than Friday, March 23; there is no registration available the day of the event, although anyone can stop by to watch the teams play and donate.
Donations of non-perishable food and money for the Tukwila Pantry will be accepted at ACME Bowl between 9 a.m. and noon March 24.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
