Capital Roots Garden Bowl 2018

Capital Roots Garden Bowl logo

Something to do inside while it's cold: The Garden Bowl -- the annual fundraiser for Capital Roots -- returns January 21 at Uncle Sam Lanes. It's a bowling event for the community gardens org*... thus Garden Bowl. Blurbage:

Each year, Capital Roots teams up with friends and businesses in the Capital Region for a winter bowling extravaganza called Garden Bowl! In the months leading up to this annual event, bowlers invite donors to sponsor their games. Then they strap on their bowling shoes and compete, winning prizes for high scores, highest fundraising and more!
Whether you throw gutter balls or bowl a perfect 300 you are welcome to join the fun. You have a chance to win ski passes, dining certificates and more while you spend the day bowling with friends, family and co-workers.

Here's the registration info. The first 50 people to raise $50 or more donations get a Garden Bowl t-shirt.

The Garden Bowl is Saturday, January 27 from 2-5 pm.

* As you know, Capital Roots now includes a bunch of different programs beyond its extensive collection of community gardens, including the Veggie Mobile and healthy-food vending machines.
