Description

Veterans for Diversity is excited to announce our 2nd Annual ‘Pins For Patriots’ bowling fundraiser on June 1, 2019, at Classic Lanes Greenfield! This event will bring communities together to celebrate and bring awareness to those we serve, Wisconsin LGBTQ+ veterans, as well as ensure we have the necessary funding for essential programming. Bowlers will participate, with dozens more cheering them on, in a 9-pin tap event in a casual style atmosphere mixing bowling, socializing, 50/50 raffles, and a Silent Auction for a great cause. Tickets to the event are $30 per person or $150 (team of 5) and include three games of bowling, shoe rental, t-shirt, and food and drink specials by the venue! Prizes for Top Bowlers and best of all, Mistress of Ceremonies this year is the fabulous Karen Valentine!

Veterans for Diversity’s mission is to provide holistic and inclusive LGBTQ+ programs and services that improve the overall mental, physical, and emotional health for all who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. For over a decade we’ve served our veterans and their families with PRIDE. We elevate our outcomes with strategic decision-making by leveraging communal knowledge and working in local partnerships to create a holistic programming environment for our veterans and sustain achievable organizational goals. Taking a similar approach to the success we know, we can’t achieve true healing, effective learning, or relevant outreach without active constituency and community engagement. Please join us by registering to bowl, donate to the silent auction, become a Sponsor, volunteer - or simply come for the fun!

ITINERARY: 11:00 AM Venue and Registration Opens. 11:45 AM Posting of the Colors by American Legion Post 18. NOON Bowling begins. The event will end when all bowlers have completed bowling. Bowing Prizes, 2nd 50/50 Raffle, and Silent Auction winners announced at end of the event.

REGISTER TODAY! Save on Online Fees - We can enter your payment manually! Alternative payment options include cash, check, or Credit/Debit Card, and more for your convenience. For Sponsorships and Donations, it's most efficient for our organization to work with you directly to avoid Online Fees. However, please use the method of your preference. THANK YOU!

What's the refund policy?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, but it can't hurt. When you register online you will receive a confirmation of registration. This is your guarantee that you've got a spot to bowl! Bowlers are encouraged to retain a copy of their receipt and bring it with them or save to your cell phone. Feel free to contact Kimberly (veteransfordiversity@gmail.com or 414-255-7487) with any additional questions or payment options.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

This is an issue of transferability and as long as you have the registration confirmation you will be able to bowl. Simply contact Kimberly if you are aware of the situation prior to the event day. If on the day of the event, ensure the nonregistered individual has your proof of registration receipt and simply have them inform a volunteer at the Registration Table. Proof of registration receipt is required to grant a no-questions-asked event-day exception under transferability to persons with unmatched names when the named individual is not present. Be reassured that we're confident we can work out any situation with the registrant and bowler in the event a confirmed registrant is unable to make it. We want to maximize your support and share the event with as many people as possible! When in doubt, come on OUT!
