In order to continue our help and support to the homeless in the Downriver community, ChristNet is holding its second annual BOWLING FUNDRAISER, on August 20th, at Taylor Lanes in Taylor. This fun, family event is to raise much needed funds, as well as increase awareness of the circumstances of the homeless right here in the Motor City.
Friday, August 20th 2010: at Taylor Lanes located at 24800 Eureka Rd. Taylor, MI 48180. Check in begins at 6:30 pm, bowling begins at 7:00 pm.
Please Note: Tickets are being sold in advance because the bowling alley has requested that I give them a count for the pizza. Advance Ticket Sales: $20 per person includes:
3 Games of Bowling, Shoe Rental, 2 Slices of Pizza
There will also be Door Prizes, Mystery Games, and 50/50 Raffles
For ticket information: please contact Debbie Petri at 313.530.4061 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unable to attend the Bowling Fundraiser PLEASE consider purchasing a ticket(s) for a family member(s), friend, co-worker, ChristNet guest or ChristNet volunteer. You can also attend the fundraiser and not even throw a bowling ball! Just come and have a fun evening with your family and friends!
During the 2009-2010 season, ChristNet provided safe overnight shelter to 387 guests. There were 375 single adults of whom 22 were veterans, as well as 5 families with 5 adults and 7 children. Our youngest guest was 11 months old; our eldest guest was 64 years old. ChristNet provided 35 safe nights for children, 1,701 safe nights for women, and 4,921 safe nights for men for a total of 6,658 safe nights!
Each day we are blessed to see that our program really does make a difference in the lives of those we seek to help!
