Mechanicsville, VA, June 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- With so many affected by the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma and Texas, AMF Bowling Centers is hosting a nationwide event on Sunday, June 9 to raise funds for the American Red Cross.
From noon to 6 p.m. on June 9, $5 from the purchase of every bowling session at all AMF centers will be donated to the American Red Cross in support of their relief efforts for those affected by the recent tornadoes. Bowling sessions include shoe rental and individual center pricing can be found on the AMF website.
“With one of our centers, AMF Moore Lanes, destroyed by the tornado in Oklahoma, we saw firsthand the destruction and devastation these events cause,” said Steve Satterwhite, AMF’s CFO and COO. “We are so fortunate that no customers or employees were in the bowling center when it was struck by the tornado. As soon as the tornadoes passed and the damage was assessed, it was clear that these storms affected the lives of so many. We need to give back and help the people suffering from the aftermath – which is why we’re asking our friends and neighbors across the country to join us on June 9.”
For those unable to come out and bowl on June 9, monetary donations can be made directly to the American Red Cross’ website.
