Operation Soldier Event Upcoming!
Check out this article for the details
:After 19 surgeries and two years of recouping I have decided to try and help the organizations that are trying to help the wounded troops. When a soldier is wounded and hospitalized Operation Soldier helps with money to obtain airfare, hotel and what ever else they need so that the family can see their wounded hero that lies in the hospital.
I believe that together we can all make a difference for the soldiers and let them know that we are here for them and that we care and appreciate what they have done for us in our time of need. Thus the reason for the Bowl – A – Thon.
Again the Bowl-A-Thon is going to take place on July 30, 2006 at 8 AM, and it should last for about 5 days, non-stop. Our goal is to bowl 4000 games, and maybe get into the Guinness Book of World Records for most games bowled.
We are hoping that people will join with us and donate $1, $5, $10, or even $1,000,000.00. We can make a difference if we work together.
In it's most simplistic terms, the way I look at it, there are over 16 million people in LA County alone. If 1/16 of them donated $1 then we would have $1,000,000.00 to help support the families of the wounded soldiers.
There are 5 bowlers doing this. Myself, my father Sidney Bond, Stanley Love II, Shawn McCalister, and Bill Meneley.
The Bowl-a-Thon will be taking place in Hanford, California, which appears to be about 25-30 miles south of Fresno. I'll provide an update with contribution information, but if you'd like to contribute now to Operation Soldier, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the link is here
