The Tukwila Rotary Club's annual fundraiser for Tukwila Pantry, the 2012 Let's Strike Out Hunger Bowlathon, is Saturday, March 24.

The Tukwila Rotary Club is one of the founding partners for the Tukwila Pantry and the event is the club's main fundraiser each year, according to club member Tracy Gallaway.

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.

For additional information, or to register for the event, contact Gallaway by email at strikeouthunger@tukwilarotary.org or by phone at 206-992-4578.
