Bowling for Scholars


The 7th Annual "Bowling for Scholars" event will be held Friday, April 8, 3 to 5 p.m. at Strike 'N Spare Bowling Center, 1309 N. Lindbergh Blvd. The event helps St. Louis Community College students by providing scholarships for textbooks, eBooks, art supplies and software.

Get a team together and sign up to bowl . The cost is $20 per person. Lanes are limited, so don't hesitate.

If you're not able to bowl, don't worry, there are still many ways to contribute to this worthy cause. You can make a donation at the bookstore cash register or become a sponsor for the event.

Donations are displayed in the form of decorated bowling pins

New this year is the online auction, where you can donate items and/or bid on fantastic items. You can bid from 8 a.m. March 21 through 11 p.m. April 4 . Items up for auction include hotel packages, vacation packages, St. Louis Symphony tickets, hot air balloon ride, an autographed Pujols baseball, jewelry, golf packages and much more. 

There's also the pin decorating contest . It's a great way to help the cause and possibly win a great prize for the best entry. 

Winning pins are displayed from the decorating contest.

All funds raised are donated to student scholarships. The event has raised $115,800 in the past which helped more than 1240 students with their instructional purchases. This year's goal is $45,000. 

Mark April 8 on your calendar and team up for a good cause.
