On Thursday, March 3, 2016, we will participate in the 5th Annual Strikes, Spares, and Splits event, a night of bowling to benefit Read Ahead. Our team will take on 51 other teams to bowl for glory (but mostly for fun) and to help fundraise for Read Ahead, a great nonprofit devoted to igniting a love of reading in young students through mentoring.
We’re participating in Strikes, Spares, and Splits because we love that Read Ahead builds the confidence in young readers preparing them for success in school and in life. This event directly supports the community partner elementary schools that are not funded by corporate donations. Therefore, if the event can raise $70,000 collectively, we will fund 130 young students at the partner elementary schools in Chinatown, Harlem, and Brooklyn.
We hope you'll consider giving a few dollars (or more!) to support the team and this fantastic nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible and will go towards helping promote children's literacy across New York City.
