Bowling for the Mountains (in costumes!!)

This is going to be a fundraiser/costume contest/bowling extravaganza for anyone looking for a good time and a good cause to contribute to. Keeper of the Mountains Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 led by Larry Gibson, a coalfield resident who has been fighting for his mountain and calling for an end to the destruction of the Appalachian Mountains through Mountaintop Removal coal mining for more than twenty years. Keeper of the Mountains needs continued support to help Larry and other residents spread the word about MTR all around the country.

If you use Facebook, please RSVP & Invite your friends here.

About the fundraiser, we're asking for $9 per person to cover the bowling expenses (three games per person), but please remember to bring your checkbooks to donate to the effort!! It's a fundraiser after all ;-) Please donate anything you can, and if you want to make it fun, have your friends and family pledge a per-pin donation (or make such a pledge yourself), and then be the best bowler you can be!!

And if you can't make it but would still like to donate to the cause you can do so here

Or, you can fill out a donation form made especially for the event here (please share this with your family and friends!!)

And second most importantly, come decked out in your favorite costume!! There will be prizes for best bowling score AND best costume, so if you're a horrible bowler, you better get creative with your costume ;-)
So come on out and support Larry Gibson and an end to Mountaintop Removal coal mining!! And be sure to invite all of your friends and family members who might want to join in. We'll see ya there!!
