Following a morning executive challenge between local business and community leaders, bowlers will take the lanes from noon to 2:15 p.m. or from 2:15 to 4 p.m.

Bowlers can register as individuals or as teams of five.

The cost of registering is $25 for adults, or $20 for students. The cost includes two games of bowling, shoe rental and an event T-shirt.

Bowlers are encouraged to find sponsors, and those who raise at least $50 per adult, or $25 per student, will receive an entry into the grand-prize drawing for $500.

Additional entries into the drawing will be granted for every $40 raised over the minimum donation.

Corporate sponsorships also are available.
