Thanks to evansgirl and roswellian11 for organizing this wonderful event. Please participate if you can!
Join us for the First Annual Zeke Lerner Celebrity Bowl-A-Thon:
I just wanted to take a minute to make sure everyone knows about the
upcoming First Annual Zeke Lerner Celebrity Bowl-A-Thon. All proceeds will
benefit Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (FSMA). Zeke and his family will
be there to support the event. It will be held at Covina Bowl (a Roswell
filming location) on Sunday, February 16th, 2003 from 12pm to 5pm. It is a
holiday weekend, so most people will have Monday off.
The plan is to have a team of 5 bowlers and 1 celebrity on each lane. There
will be 3 games, and we are asking the celebrities to join us for at least
two. So, as long as we get enough celebrities, each team will bowl with two
~We are, of course, inviting all of the Roswell cast, and a number of
Roswell guest stars, as well as other actors, musicians, athletes, and radio
and TV personalities. Right now I am taking tentative confirmations from
them, just to see who is interested, since it is still a little early for
most of them to know what their schedules will be like. So, we can’t
guarantee anybody at this time. But, I do think it is something that a lot
of people will want to participate in, especially the Roswell actors who
will want to help Zeke and Garrett.~
**Sign ups will begin on Wednesday, August 21st, 2002 at 7pm Pacific Time. A
link to the sign up sheet will be posted on here, and on FanForum at all the
Roswell threads at that time. We are also in the process of designing a
website that will have updated info on the event, bowling teams, and the
celebrities as they confirm.
And if you want to help, but can’t be there, we will have a sponsor-a-bowler
program where you can sponsor a needy child from Covina, or a local child
with SMA, so that they can participate.
Space is limited, since we can only fit 5 people on a lane. The minimum
donation to participate is $70 per person. We will also have a pledge sheet
for you to print so that you can get friends and family, or local businesses
to sponsor you, just like with a walk-a-thon. The $70.00 fee will cover
lunch, beverages, a souvenir program, 3 games, and shoe rental.
Commemorative T-shirts will be $10.00, and will be available only by
pre-ordering. You will have the opportunity to do so soon.
We will also be having a contest in which the team that raises the most
money will get to choose both celebrities that they will get to bowl with.
The second place team will get to choose one of the celebrities they will
bowl with. There will be an auction at the event as well.
The minimum donations will be accepted from October 30th to November 30th,
2002. Additional money raised for the contest will be due by January 31st,
so that we can get a celebrity list out to the winning teams.
****Each team (anywhere from 2 to 5 people) should have one person sign up
for the whole team.**** That person will need to know each bowlers’ name
(first and last), posting name (if they have one), address, phone number,
e-mail, and if they will be staying in a hotel or not. We have a wonderful
and supportive hotel working on a group discount for us. I will have an
exact cost at a later date, and at that point those needing a hotel can
decide if they want to stay there, or find their own.
If a team has less than 5 people, we will add individuals looking for teams
to it. And you may sign up as an individual if you do not have a team
together at the point of registration.
So, Dan and I look forward to seeing you all there. :D Get started
organizing those teams! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel
free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take Care everybody!
