We have decided to try this again this year! Assured Life Association is officially sponsoring a team “mail-in” bowling tournament to benefit Feeding America. A mail-In bowling tournament means that your team can bowl at your location and mail your scores into the Fraternal Department. Last year we had 9 teams from 3 chapters participate. I’m sure we can improve on that this year, can’t we?
The tournament will be a team only tournament to include 4-person teams of all males, all females or mixed; however, all teams will be placed into one tournament pool unless the number of registrations allows separate tournaments.
A team registration fee in the amount $60 ($15 per bowler) must be mailed to the home office along with the registration form. The winning team will receive a monetary prize of $260; additional prizes may be awarded depending upon the number of teams registered.
All profits from the tournament will be donated to Feeding America to help those struggling with hunger in the United States. Profits are defined as all registrations fees received. No other expenses will be deducted from the registrations collected.
There is no deadline for registration, but please register your team before you bowl. Bowling must be completed and scores submitted to the home office on or before December 1, 2018. So, please help us help the hungry here in the United States and enter a team in Strikes Against Hunger!
September is Hunger Action Month
Take the Hunger Action Month Challenge
Do you like to eat out once in awhile? Do you frequently get a drink at Starbucks?
My wife and I go out for breakfast at least once each weekend. It’s our favorite meal to eat out other than going to a nice restaurant for special occasions. We typically spend about $30, including tip, to get breakfast at The Egg and I in Castle Rock, Colorado.
Just think, if we were to sacrifice that meal out for the month of September and donate the money we would have spent on each breakfast to the Food Bank of the Rockies, we would be contributing $120 to help the hungry in our area. At the Food Bank of the Rockies, a $1 donation provides 4 nutritious meals. So, for sacrificing breakfast out for the month of September, my wife and I can provide 480 meals for the hungry in Colorado!
How about you? Can you sacrifice a meal out during the month of September and donate the amount you would spend to your local food bank or food program? That’s our challenge! How about sacrificing that daily or weekly Starbucks fix for the month of September?
On the average, if a person gets a Starbucks drink 3 times a week, he or she is spending about $30—$35 per month. Think of the impact these sacrifices could have for those in need!
That’s the challenge, now its up to you. Please let us know if you take the challenge by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
