BVL is providing a unique opportunity to Brighten Veterans’ Lives through a special drawing to be held at the USBC annual convention in Reno. BVL will raffle a carpet bowling lane kit, which can be donated to any VA facility in the U.S. This $500 value will provide hours of fun and entertainment during the veterans’ hospital stay.
In just a few minutes time, recuperating veterans can join in the fun of America’s most popular indoor sport right in their VA Hospital or Veterans Home. The lane can be used virtually anywhere — in an activities room, a hallway, or even outside — and will provide hours of fun and fitness. The kit includes a 26 foot-long red, white and blue carpet bowling lane, a rubberized lightweight bowling ball and 10 pins. All the elements of the kit are easily stored in a lightweight nylon bag for safekeeping.
There are three ways to participate: by mailing a $10 donation to BVL, postmarked no later than April 16 (See the green Donate a Carpet Lane Kit button to the right of this post) http://www.bowlforveterans.org/donate-a-carpet-lane-kit/; using a credit card with the red “Donate Now” button to the right of this post (note Carpet Lane in the designation box) deadline April 23; or with a $10 contribution on-site at the BVL booth during the convention in Reno. The booth will be located in the Silver Barron A Room at the Silver Legacy Hotel. Booth hours are as follows: April 22, Noon-5 p.m.; April 23, 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; and April 24, 7:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. The tickets are $10 each, with no limit to the number of donations.
(While at the BVL booth, convention goers can pick up the latest BVL promotional materials as well as items to help coordinate a successful BVL campaign. In addition to posters and flyers, visitors can purchase the latest BVL polo shirts, totes, can coolers, and much more.)
The winner will be announced at the convention and notified by mail.
