NEWAYGO COUNTY, MI – You can help make a difference in a child’s life by bringing them life-enriching mentors through TrueNorth’s TrueMentors program. So spare the excuses and strike up your friends, co-workers and relatives to team with you at Bowlapalooza 2018.

This year, pull out your favorite team gear and join TrueMentors for a tailgate party with bowling, music and fun! Bowlapalooza brings teams of five bowlers together to bowl and have fun, but most importantly, to raise money that goes directly toward recruiting, enrolling and matching volunteers with children needing them most. To make it easy to participate, TrueMentors is offering a variety of dates and times for your convenience: April 26, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.; April 27, 5–7 p.m. and 7:30–9:30 p.m.; and April 28, 3-5 p.m., all at The Commons of Fremont, 5885 S. Warner Avenue in Fremont.

The event is all about kids. The more donations bowlers raise, the more children will benefit by having an adult mentor in their lives. Bowlapalooza is the single largest annual fundraiser for TrueMentors. There are great prizes and fundraising incentives as well. Each bowler is asked to raise a minimum of $40, at which point they earn an awesome, newly-designed Bowlapalooza 2018 t-shirt, and for every $40 raised they will receive a raffle ticket to win great door prizes throughout each event.

The top fundraisers for each session will be crowned “Bowlapalooza King or Queen” and treated as such. The top overall fundraiser will win the grand prize, which is still being finalized, but will include everything you need for a super special, fun-filled Newaygo County mini stay-cation. Grand prize will be awarded to the adult individual (age 21 and older) with the most donations collected and turned in at the time of bowl.

Specific details about prizes, registration, and online fundraising are forthcoming, but mark your calendars now for Bowlapooza 2018. Contact Chelsea Clark at (231) 924-0641, ext. 109, or via email at, with any questions, or visit the Bowlapalooza page at to register your team today. TrueMentors is vital because sometimes, all a kid needs is one more caring adult in their life to make a lasting positive difference.
