Why do we need to raise a minimum of $650.00 per lane?

Hunger is a complex problem with multiple solutions that often work best in combination. That’s why Project Bread is supporting the widest range of solutions in the state: more than 430 community food programs ranging from community-based meal programs to early childhood and school nutrition initiatives, to improved access to local fresh food resources. And by responding to hunger in an immediate way, as well as through sustainable solutions that can eradicate it, we assure you that your contributions will go further.

Why can’t we have more than 6 people on a lane?

To ensure that everyone can bowl at least one game, we need to limit the participants to six people per lane. Each team will have enough time to bowl one game.

We are happy to accommodate teams of more than six bowlers on multiple lanes (raising $650 per lane). We will do our very best to place teams on adjacent lanes.
