CORNWALL, Ontario - The United Way of SDG has partnered with Quilles Nativité Bowl to raise funds for its member agencies.
"We are always looking for new ways to raise funds for and awareness of the United Way," said Nolan Quinn, this year’s campaign chair. "The idea of the Martini League is fun and innovative."
The Ladies Martini Bowling League will bowl Wednesday evenings beginning Oct. 2 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Quilles Nativité Bowl, located at 301 McConnell Ave. in Cornwall.
The league includes six teams consisting of six bowlers each. For $8 a week, the ladies will bowl two games. Each week will feature a new and different martini and once a month supper will be provided. A portion of the proceeds will go to the United Way.
"This is a fun league and being an experienced bowler is not a requirement. We will teach you what you need to know," said Janet Wheeler, manager of the bowling alley.
The United Way is an autonomous non-profit organization governed by a volunteer-led local board of directors. Today, there are over 100 United Ways across the country. Each United Way raises money and allocates funds locally to support its community.
