Each year Country Club Lanes organizes and hosts an annual event called "Strikes Against Breast Cancer." This fifth year puts the spotlight on Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation. Since the creation of this fundraiser, 70 year old breast cancer survivor Mary Anne Brizzee and her bowling troop of family and friends totaling near 35 participants hits the Country Club lanes ready to strike back against cancer.
Any bowlers interested in participating can join in the fun on Feb. 23, 2014 by registering before the Feb. 20 deadline. Teams of five can register for $100 or $25 per person and shoes, goody bags and prize give-aways are included. Brizzee and her "Pink Pins Posse" of good cause bowlers will be wearing pink survivor t-shirts and filling the club with their enthusiasm and competitive fun aimed at raising funds for a good cause.
Squad One plays from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. with House music. Squad Two plays from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. and Squad Three from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. with Glow Bowl and a live DJ. The pins will be PINK! The event will also include a raffle with various donated prizes and interested supporters are welcome to contact Country Club Lanes about donations.
Country Club Lanes is located at 2600 Watt Ave., Sacramento, CA 95821 and is far more than your grandfathers bowling alley. Along with bowling, they have laser tag, two arcades, billiards, a full bar, cafe and even a banquet room upstairs. All 48 of their bowling lanes were recently redone and eleven 10x10 HD screens were added to allow patrons to watch their favorite sports or music videos while bowling. In others words, you can bring out your entire family to have fun during this Strikes Against Breast Cancer event.
Interested bowlers can find out more at the official CCL website here or call (916) 595-9502 or join the event on facebook here. Company team packages are also available for a $275 flat fee and includes unlimited (wow) food and non-alcoholic beverages from the Concourse Cafe, six months of Monitor Advertising for their business, Bowl for Life T-Shirts, prize-giveaways and team goody bags.
"Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation was created in memory of Albie Carson who succumbed to breast cancer on July 4, 2002. Albie was a 50-year resident of Sacramento where she attended school, raised a family, and made a career in the real estate community. She developed strong ties to the area and was well known and loved by her peers and clients alike. We find it only fitting that her legacy continues to be one of selfless giving.
In honor of Albie, it is our goal to raise money to help others in the community who face their own battles with this disease."
