2019 March for Meals raises over $53,000 to feed seniors!

 

The 15th annual March for Meals campaign was a success due to broad community support received from dedicated volunteers, scores of generous businesses and community members participating on teams and obtaining donations from hundreds within the community. Thank you!

New Location-Riverside Lanes

The Bowling Bash has a new home in 2018; Riverside Lanes in Mount Vernon.  After many years at San Juan Lanes, we want all to be aware of the change and the rationale for it.

It is quite simple, the objective of March for Meals, and its associated programs which the Bowling Bash is one, has always been to raise funds to feed Skagit seniors-the more money raised means more meals for seniors.  Preserving as much of a donation as possible by controlling costs, also supports our objective to provide as many meals as possible for seniors.     

For the first time, the March for Meals/Bowling Bash Committee put the Bowling Bash “out-to-bid” in hopes of finding ways to control costs, while maintaining the delightful experience Bowling Bash participants have come to enjoy.  Both San Juan Lanes and Riverside Lanes responded to our request; however, Riverside Lanes provided cost saving options equivalent to approximately 300 meals for our seniors.

In addition to the cost savings, Riverside Lanes’ provides more lanes (24 vs. 16), additional space and a central location in the county, which should enhance the Bowling Bash experience for all. 

If you have questions or concerns regarding the change to Riverside Lanes (e.g. transportation needs, accessibility, etc.) please contact us by email bowlingbash@comcast.net or by calling Sally Hill at 360.293.7473.

Riverside Lanes is located at 225 Riverside Ln Mount Vernon, WA 98273.
