MARYSVILLE – The Marysville Kiwanis Club’s 1st Bowling for Dollars for Scholars event will take place at Strawberry Lanes at 1 p.m. May 7.

Proceeds will pay for scholarships for graduating seniors at Marysville high schools.

“We’ve awarded scholarships in the past, but would like to give out even more,” Kiwanis club member Steve Powell said. “We would love to bring in several thousand dollars to help even more students continue their educations.”

Cost is $30 per person. That entitles each bowler to three games, including shoe and ball rentals. Fun prizes will be awarded.

“To liven things up, I’d love to see some challenges being made – such as a team from the city taking on the school district,” Powell said. “And I’d like to make a personal challenge here for The Marysville Globe staff to take on a team from the North County Outlook – all in fun of course.”

Strawberry Lanes is giving Kiwanis a discounted rate so most of the money will go to the kids. It will also have its concession stand open, selling all types of food and beverages.

With the weather being so bad this spring, Powell said a bowling tourney makes sense.

“Everyone can bowl,” he said. “Maybe not that well, but it doesn’t matter for this tourney because it’s all for the kids.”
