The Seattle Hockey Boosters Club is giving their club members the chance to bowl with a T-Bird.

The Bowling Party is at 1 p.m. Jan. 8 at Kent Bowl. To participate at the event, you must be an active dues paying member of the booster club but, interested parties will be able to join the club at the event and then attend the party.

The Bowling Party is an annual fundraiser held by the Seattle Hockey Boosters Club to raise money for the Education Fund that is available to the hockey players to pay for the college education of the players who don’t go on the play professionally. The fund is managed by the Canadian Hockey League/Western Hockey League.

“It’s a great event for anyone who wants to get to know the boys on the team a little bit better and it’s always fun to see how serious they are about being competitive even off the ice,” said Stevi Grega, president of the boosters club.

One of the primary purposes of the booster club is to raise funds to donate to the team for the sake of the players and to donate to the scholarship fund. All donations from the bowling party go directly to the donation fund.

The cost of the event is $20 per person. To bowl with the players, the booster club asks for a minimum donation of $20 for an individual, $30 for a family.

All participants get assigned to a lane where they will bowl with a Thunderbirds player or players. Depending on how many people attend, there could be anywhere from one to three players on a lane for two games.

The top scoring bowler will win a gift card prize and the person who brings in the highest dollar amount in donations gets a bowling pin autographed by the whole team.

Kent Bowl is located at 1234 N. Central Ave.
