NARI Pins 4 Kids
Pins 4 Kids is an annual bowling event hosted by NARI of Greater Charlotte to support the Dream On 3 organization. Dream on 3 is a non-profit organization providing kids living with a disability or life-altering condition an opportunity to live out their ultimate sports dreams.
This year, we are offering 2 bowling sessions at the event to accomodate more teams and help reach our goal of $100,000 raised! Each team that registers is asked to fundraise $1,000 through their networks for the event. Any that raises $1,000 or more will receive matching bowling shirts for their team. There will also be a silent auction with some great items available - all proceeds will go to Dream on 3.
There are several ways to get involved, please click on a button below to
sign up to bowl, become a sponsor, donate to a team or provide a prize for the event.
