On behalf of Strikes For Kids, I would like to cordially invite you, your friends and family to participate in The Strikes For Kids Buffalo Bowling Classic Presented by The Shades of Greatness Foundation. The bowling event hosted by Bills’ Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy will be taking place on Saturday August 12, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at AMF Airport Lanes, located at 3754 Genesee St, Cheektowaga, NY 14225. This fundraiser sold out in its first year and was featured nationally on the CBS show Game Changers. All our events across the country sell out so I advise you to rally your team together quickly so you don’t miss out on an incredible afternoon of fun. Strikes For Kids welcomes all ages and skill levels so whether you come with your co-workers or for a family outing with the kids we look forward to seeing you on the lanes.
Proceeds from the event will go to benefiting The Strikes For Kids Back 2 School Bonanza as well as Shades of Greatness, Inc. (“SOGI”), the LeSean McCoy Foundation is a 501 c(3) nonprofit organization. The foundation rests on two components the first of which raises awareness, educates and may serve as a direct impact to an individual or family in need who has been diagnosed with or affected by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (“ALS”). The second component strives to empower and uplift socially and economically challenged youth. The Strikes For Kids Back 2 School Bonanza will provide a minimum of 50 students from the local surrounding communities with backpacks filled with school supplies presented to them by Mr. McCoy. These backpacks will help ensure students are prepared to get off to a successful start to the school year. Strikes For Kids is based in Elk Grove, CA, but please rest assure all proceeds raised from this event will remain in Buffalo area.
