“Bowling for Bowls” Ohio Pet Charity- Cleveland Event: Raising Funds for Pet Food Bank
Many of you around town have heard of or contributed to the “My Best Friend’s Bowl” pet food bank that was started in February 2011 and is operated out of Lakewood Community Services Center.
The goal of the owner, Judy Towner, is to provide pet food to owners facing difficult times even feeding themselves during tough economic times, and to help the pet owners keep their pets in their homes. Many, unfortunately, have thus still had to surrender their best friends to shelters.
“My Best Friend’s Bowl” has now joined forces with the Public Animal Welfare Society of Ohio (PAWS) a not-for-profit animal rescue, foster and adoption agency, run largely by an all-volunteer staff along with their Director, Amy Beichler. The PAWS has been a tireless advocate for animals in need since 1979.
On Friday, June 15th from 6-10pm, PAWS will be holding the first ever benefit to raise funds, food and awareness of the problem people are having feeding their pets.
The event, “Bowling for Bowls” is $20.00 per person, being held at Mahall’s 20 Lanes, and will include two games of bowling, shoe rental, food, soda, Chinese raffle and 50-50 raffle in 2 shifts.
-DJ Earl from Lucky Duck DJ/Karaoke Productions will be there to entertain everyone, and Laurie Sekeres from Ganley Westside Imports in North Olmsted will be there with the “Pet tested, Pet approved” Subaru Forrester to help us “Stuff the Subaru” with pet food donations.
*Anyone bringing a bag of dry dog or cat food will receive 2 free Chinese raffle tickets. There will be a cash bar as well.
Get your teams together for an evening of fun, food and music while helping PAWS reach out to more pet owners in need. And, see the newly renovated Mahall’s and the fabulous garage doors that have been recently opened for an open air view of Madison Avenue while enjoying the evening.
