The Sussex Family YMCA is inviting the community to its third annual Bowl for Kids event on Sunday, March 29, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Lefty’s Alley & Eats in Lewes. The family-friendly event has a goal of raising $15,000, which supports the Y’s Annual Campaign.
The YMCA of Delaware’s Annual Campaign provides scholarships to individuals and families in the local community, ensuring that everyone has access to their programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The Sussex Family Y works to support the people and neighborhoods by addressing community issues such as school readiness, chronic diseases and drowning prevention.
“Many people don’t realize the Y is a non-profit charity with a mission to strengthen our community,” said Tamisha Hopkins, executive director of the Sussex Family YMCA. “Last year, our branch provided over $75,000 in financial assistance to local adults and families. We want to continue to make an impact and serve more people; our Bowl for Kids Event is a fun way for everyone in the community to help.”
Friends and neighbors can register a team for $300 (up to six players). The donation includes an hour and 15 minutes of play, shoe rental, pizza and soda. Those who don’t have a team can give the Y a call, and they will set them up. To register, call the Sussex Family Y at (302) 296-9622 or visit www.ymcade.org/locations/sussex-ymca. Walk-in registrations are welcome. Lefty’s Alley & Eats is located at 36450 Plaza Drive, Lewes.
