Here’s a quick guest post from my young friend Anthony Gargiula. I’ve interviewed Anthony several times, and am always proud to support his annual fundraiser Bowling Against Bullying.
I am in the process of organizing my 3rd Bowling Against Bullying Fundraiser and I would really appreciate your help.
Due to the amazing fundraising events I have already organized, I have been able to help fund many area schools’ anti bullying programs. In November I had the opportunity to give a $1,000 check to the largest anti-bullying convention in the United States. For this upcoming event, I am focusing on continuing to give money to local area schools for their mandated anti bullying programs, while also spreading my “anti-bullying” message around the country.
This year’s event will be held on Sunday, May 5th 2013, 2:00 – 5:00 at Spare Time Bowl in Clifton Park. We will be hosting up to 300 bowlers at this event. We are looking for any amount of monetary donation, a donated item for our raffle and/or you and your family/friends/colleagues to join me for this fun day. We are encouraging “work” and “family” bowling teams to do this as a group effort!
For any monetary donation or raffle item donated, your business will be advertised on a sponsorship board displayed on the day of the event, as well as being announced throughout the afternoon by the DJ. Also, Albany Broadcasting is our official media sponsor so this means that this event will be promoted on FLY 92 – 104.9 The Cat – B95.5, Magic 590AM and Jamz 96.3.
If you are interested in participating in any way or have any questions, please call my Dad, Rich, at
My goal this year is $14,000 since I am turning 14 on April 30th.
Thank you for your support,
Anthony Gargiula, Student Organizer
