Benefitting the Poverello Center

In just a few days, the annual Poverello Bowl-A-Thon will take place. This year marks the events 20th anniversary and plans on being the largest ever.  The fundraiser is being held at the beautiful refurbished Sawgrass Lanes at 8501 North University Drive in Tamarac.


Those who would like to participate but would prefer not to drive can board one of four luxury coaches which will transport people to and from the event.

Following the fundraiser, everyone is encouraged to head to Matty’s on the Drive for the official after party event.  Matty’s won the rights last year by raising the most money for The Poverello Food Bank, over $4000.

Coaches will depart Wilton Drive at approximately 10:45 a.m. Registration will begin at 11:00 a.m. while the event is scheduled to begin at noon.

As an added incentive this year bowlers can build their own web page by going to and invite friends and family to pledge on line.

In addition, any individual raising $1000 or more will receive a professionally drilled bowling ball from The Bowlers Edge Pro Shop at Sawgrass Lanes.  For those raising $500 or more they will receive a bowling bag with the Bowl-A-Thon logo.

Get your teams together and get registered and help feed those living with HIV/AIDS in our community.
