Bowling showdown helps Relay for Life

This Saturday, have some fun - and do some good - by helping to raise money for a local charity with a night of Cosmic Bowling at the Cactus.

Starting at 8 p.m., with registration beginning at 7 p.m., participants will be able to bowl three games for $15 (does not include shoe rental), with all proceeds benefiting Perham's Relay for Life.

The event will feature 'lights-off' bowling, silent auction items, and other games worked in to offer players chances to win prizes.

The event is the brainchild of the Monday Night Old Bags Relay for Life team, a group that meets on Mondays and plans monthly fundraisers for Relay for Life. Last month, they held a bake sale; the month before that they were involved in the Parade of Lights.

After bowling, the group plans to hold a Texas Hold 'Em tournament at the Silver Moon on Feb. 18.

"It's going to be a fun night," said Sandy Erickson, president of the Monday Night Old Bags group, of the Cosmic Bowling event. "And it's for a good cause."

It is strongly recommended that those wishing to participate make a reservation. To do so, call the Cactus at 346-2554.
