Women's Bowling Seeks Help In "Striking For A Cause"

RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Felician College women's bowling team is seeking help from the College and local communities in "Striking For A Cause."

On Friday night, February 6, the Golden Falcons will sponsor a bowling fundraiser to help eradicate prostate and pancreatic cancer. The event will take place at Lodi Lanes from 9 to 11 p.m.

A suggested donation of $10 covers an individual's bowling for the event. Music will be played and refreshments served to all participants. A series of prize raffles will also be held.

The Felician women's bowling program is in the midst of its inaugural season, and all eight team members are freshmen. The Golden Falcons own a dual won-lost record of 26-20 heading into this weekend's Red Flash Invitational in Altoona, Pa., hosted by Saint Francis University.

"The team has been wanting to put on a fundraiser as a meet-and-greet for our new program, and to raise money for a great cause," said Felician head coach Andrew Toriello. "Hopefully by getting it started now, we can turn it into a yearly tradition. We decided to assist with fighting prostate and pancreatic cancer because those two ailments have personally affected the families of team members."

Lodi Lanes is located at 58 Terhune Avenue in Lodi, N.J. Directions are available at www.lodi-lanes.com/directions/.

To make a donation without attending on Feb. 6, contact Toriello at TorielloA@felician.edu or (201) 559-6185.
