Join us for an evening of fun, games, camaraderie and prizes at the Geneva Academic Foundation (GAF) Bowling and Silent Auction Fundraiser ‘Bowl Us Over’
on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at Bowling Green Sports Center in West Chicago.  The event begins at 8:00pm and
continues until about 11:30pm.  Bowling Green is located at 243 W. Roosevelt Road in West Chicago. 

Get your team of six ready or sign up by yourself and GAF will place you on a team. The bowling costs
$25/person and includes 3 games of bowling, shoes, and appetizers.  There will be a cash bar, silent auction, ‘Dead or Alive’ 50/50 game (bring your dollar bills), and a ‘Bead’ game. A strand of beads will cost $5 and the winner receives a Kindle Fire!  Prizes will also be awarded for the highest scoring teams, the first ‘Turkey’, and for the ‘best bowling outfit’. The first two games will be bowled as Scotch Doubles. New to Scotch Doubles? It is easy, fast, and fun. The third game will be Wacky Bowl! Rules are available on the GAF website (www.gafgeneva.org). Don’t like to bowl? Come for the camaraderie and the Silent Auction! It will be a fun night!

Donations for the Silent Auction are still coming in, but there have been some wonderful items donated so far, including a one-week stay at a condo on Marco Island in Florida, a Discovery Flight for two (including
ground school, simulator time, and actual flight time), Cubs tickets, theater tickets, and lots of gift cards and gift baskets. Also this year, GAF will not be holding an online auction in the spring for the Graduation Seats, but will include the front row and reserved seats for the Geneva High School and Geneva Middle School graduation and promotion ceremonies at the Silent Auction.

Registration for bowling is being accepted online at the GAF website (www.gafgeneva.org) or you may email gafaware1@sbcglobal.net . Please include your name and phone number. Payment will be accepted at the event.

GAF is still collecting items for the Silent Auction. If you would like to donate an item, please contact
Lisa Otto at lisaotto@comcast.net  or call 630-715-6152.

The event actually takes place at Bowling Green Sports Center, 243 W. Roosevelt Rd. in West Chicago, not at Geneva High School. The Patch is being tempermental right now and will not let me input it correctly. As soon as things are fixed, I will change the location to Bowling Green. I hope that you can join us and help support Geneva students! Thanks!
