The Columbia Triathlon Association is the presenting sponsor of "Bowling for a Change - One Pin at a Time," a new benefit for The Arc of Howard County from 7 p.m to 9 p.m. Feb. 21 at Brunswick Columbia Lanes.
Lane sponsorships are still available, and teams can register to participate. Lane sponsors who contribute $100 can have their company logo displayed on the score board and on T-shirts, and will be recognized in The Arc's annual report and e-newsletter.
Teams of four to six bowlers will receive "Bowling for a Change" T-shirts. Their goal is to raise at least $500 from friends and associates to help support The Arc. Awards will be presented.
Proceeds will help support The Arc's vocational and residential support services, respite care and other programs for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
