Humane Society Calumet Area (HSCA) hosts its first Bark & Bowl, a night of crazy, cosmic bowling to benefit the animals at HSCA on October 4 from 8 to 11 p.m. at Plaza Lanes, 8101 Kennedy Ave, Highland.
The cost is $30 per bowler, which includes three hours of bowling, shoe rental, and a dessert bar by Gold Star Café and Catering. Bowlers can reserve a lane of 6 bowlers for $160, a $20 discount. Spectator tickets are available for $10.
Crazy bowling is bowling with a twist. Each frame presents a different fun challenge for bowlers to try, including bowling with your eyes closed, bowling backwards between your legs, or bowling on one foot.
Bowlers are encouraged to enlist the help of friends, family and co-workers to raise pledges to support the animals of HSCA.
All proceeds benefit the animals of HSCA. HSCA would not exist without the generous support of the community. HSCA is a non-profit organization that does not receive any state or tax dollars. HSCA is funded solely through donations and fundraisers. Funds raised help provide medical care and basic necessities for the animals at HSCA.
