Employment Horizons will host a spooky, Halloween-themed Bowl-A-Thon Oct. 29 at Hanover Lanes, East Hanover.
The fundraiser will feature costumed bowlers and prizes. Sponsored by the New Jersey office of Avison Young, the Bowl-A-Thon supports the Cedar Knolls based nonprofit agency that provides job training and placement services to individuals with disabilities.
This year, Employment Horizons will also honor Ed Walsh of Avison Young for all of his hard work and support for the agency. Additional sponsors include Edgewood Consulting, Bayonne Glass, Provident Bank, Kiwanis Club of Randolph, and VFW Watnong Post #3401.
The fundraiser is one of the most anticipated of the year for the organization’s program participants, who start planning their costumes weeks ahead in anticipation of the event. The costume contest is always a treat, with many vying for the top spots each year. Some awards last year went to Scariest Costume, Best Homemade Costume and Best Vintage Costume. The event provides hard-working people with disabilities a chance to celebrate with their coworkers, while raising money to enhance job skills training.
Anyone can join in the fun while supporting the agency’s mission by purchasing tickets online for $20 per bowler. There are also opportunities to become a lane, lunch, or costume contest sponsor. Those unable to bowl can also show their support by joining the Bowl-A-Thon luncheon for $5, or by making a Bowl-A-Thon donation. Checks may be mailed to Employment Horizons, 10 Ridgedale Ave., Cedar Knolls, NJ 07927.
Pre-registration is required by Oct. 21. For further information, visit www.emhorizons.org or contact Emily Mills, Data Management Specialist at 973-538-8822, ext. 243 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
