SPCA to host fourth annual bowl-a-thon at Faxon Lanes

The Lycoming County SPCA will host its fourth annual Pins for Paws Bowl for the Animals from 2 to 4 p.m. May 5 at Faxon Lanes, 1225 River Ave.

Participants who raise additional pledges beyond their registration fee for the event will be eligible to win door prizes and other gifts compliments of various local businesses.

Faxon Lanes will offer Pizza Pins and Pop Bowling Party at a reduced rate for the event and will provide door prizes for the bowlers to win during the bowl-a-thon.

To help estimate the number of participants, the SPCA is suggesting that all participants reregister for the event. Registrations will be accepted at the time of the event.

Participants can register before the event for $10 or $15 at the door the day of the event.

Registration fees cover the cost of the Pizza Pins and Pop Party during the event.

Deadline for registration is April 30.

The money raised from the event will be used to provide care for more than 4,000 homeless and abused domestic animals the shelter serves every year.

Additional information, including registration and sponsor forms are available at the SPCA, 2805 Reach Road or by logging on to the SPCA website at
