Strikes For Seagull Fundraiser June 8 At Greenacres Bowl

Seagull Services plans to fill the lanes of Greenacres Bowl with supporters lined up to throw strikes — and a few spares — to benefit the agency that provides services for people with disabilities.

The second annual Strikes for Seagull bowling event will take place Sunday, June 8 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Greenacres Bowl (6126 Lake Worth Road).

Celebrating its 35th year, Seagull Services provides advocacy and services to individuals with disabilities and their families, as well as workforce development and employment services for those with barriers to employment. Seagull Services also includes a residence and charter school, Seagull Academy for Independent Living, for middle and high school students.

“We’re excited to bring back Strikes for Seagull for a second year,” Seagull Services President & CEO Barbara Nurenberg said. “Bowling is a great family event, regardless of whether anyone bowls a strike. The community had a great time last year, and we expect to fill the lanes again this year.”

The event features two hours of bowling, a silent auction, raffle prizes, balloon animals for the kids, pizza and soda. The cost is $25 per person, or $120 for a team of five. If you can’t bowl, sponsor a lane for $125 for a team of Seagull students or program participants to play.

All proceeds from the event will go toward Seagull’s school enrichment activities, summer camp and the school-to-work transition program.

Other sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information, or to become a sponsor, contact Special Events Coordinator Elizabeth McDermott at (561) 842-5814, ext. 111 or
