2013 Rock n’ Bowl “Throw Back Jam”


Dear Friends:

Are you ready to put on your bell bottoms, psychedelic shirt and peace necklaces for a good cause? Are you willing to spend a few hours enjoying the music from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, with your friends, family or colleagues for the purpose of supporting girls in our community? Do you want to just have fun? Well of course you do! And I have the perfect event for you to have fun, move to some good music, play dress up from “back in the day,” and all while helping to transform and support the lives of girls in the Hillsborough community. Come out and join PACE Center for Girls, Hillsborough for our 2013 Rock n’ Bowl “Throw Back Jam” on Saturday, October 5 at Pin Chasers, 5555 W. Hillsborough Avenue, Tampa from 12:00 noon-3:00pm.

Who is PACE, you ask? PACE Center for Girls is a Florida based program that provides comprehensive education and therapeutic services for adolescent girls who have faced many challenges. These challenges may include academic struggles, delinquency, truancy and/or inconsistent familial support. PACE is a model that utilizes holistic, gender-responsive and trauma-informed services, including academic, counseling, service-learning, career preparation and independent living skills, to transform the lives of girls. Our mission is to provide girls and young women an opportunity for a better future through education, counseling, training and advocacy. PACE Center of Girls, Hillsborough is one of 18 PACE centers throughout the state of Florida.

What can you do to support PACE, you ask? You can help make a difference in a girl’s life by forming a team of 5 to play in the 2013 Rock n’ Bowl “Throw Back Jam.” To participate, each bowler must raise a minimum of $100 for a team total of $500. Bowlers can raise their $100 through donations, or by selling 10 drawing tickets ($10 each), or a combination of both. Supporters who purchase the tickets will be entered into a drawing to win one of five monetary prizes, ranging from $250 to $1000! And with our incentive plan everyone who raises $120 or more is guaranteed to take home a fundraising prize!

Each bowler will receive unlimited bowling for 3 hours, a free t-shirt and a chance to win other great prizes throughout the event.

Are you ready to play for a good cause? Of course you are! Contact Candi Nevin at candi.nevin@pacecenter.org or by telephone (813) 739-0410 x309 to get a team packet.
