The Amazing Grace Christian Foundation is once again raising funds for school children in the Philippines.
The annual Bowling for Charity fundraiser is scheduled for noon on Saturday, March 30, at Leisure Time Bowling, located at 2739 Keith St., Cleveland.
Founder Grace Adewuya said the foundation is grateful for the continued support of the Cleveland community.
"This is the time of the year we ask for your help to send underprivileged children in the Philippines back to school," she emphasized.
Adewuya added that this is the 12th year of conducting back-to-school outreaches, and there are more children needing assistance than in the past. The effort has increased from 17 to 19 sites, and about 1,200 children are needing backpacks.
The school year in the Philippines begins the first week of June, and the foundation is planning to provide each child with a backpack, filled with school supplies.
Proceeds from this bowling fundraiser will be used to provide these school supplies.
The cost for each backpack (and supplies) is $15.
Anyone interested in participating in the bowling event can purchase tickets by going to amazinggracefoundation.org, and clicking on Buy Tickets. Entry is $15 per person, or $65 for a team of five.
