|Word to the wise: the refs take bribes.|
|It’s festive. Really.|
Event coordinator Karen McNeilly organizes this new tradition, the “Every So Often Turkey Bowl,” at Bowl America in Falls Church, VA (140 S Maple Avenue) starting at 7:37 pm. Mission supporters, staff and homeless guests will be competing for coveted trophies and raising awareness of the needs of poor people in our community.
According to David Treadwell, Mission executive director, “Even though this event is pretty silly, it shows the compassion and commitment of the Mission’s friends and donors. It’s definitely a community favorite, and we’re so grateful for their help.”
Bowlers can register for the $20 early bird discount;
entry is $25 at the door. Thematic attire encouraged.
Media are invited to attend. Please contact Deborah Chambers at 202-534-9965 cell or firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate interviews with Mission supporters, guests and staff.
