Bowl Event Benefits Hospice of Dayton

The sixteenth annual Bowl for Hospice is a wonderful way to honor and remember a loved one while supporting the mission of Hospice of Dayton. Started by Jon Poelking in memory of his brothers Joe and Jerry, Bowl for Hospice has been an annual fun-filled afternoon for participants young and old.  Jon Poelking passed away in 2010 and the event has continued in his honor. This will be the final year for the benefit memorializing Jon Poelking and his brothers, which has generated over $700,000 to support patient care and services since its inception.Bowl for Hospice will take place from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at Woodman Lanes, 3200 Woodman Dr., in Kettering on Sunday, October 6. WDTN TV Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik and former Chief Meteriologist Carl Nichols will serve as special event emcees.  Each participating bowler receives complimentary Papa John’s Pizza, an event t-shirt and two hours of bowling with their $50 registration donation. Event highlights also include a 50/50 raffle, a trip giveaway, door prizes and much more.  All proceeds will benefit patient care at Hospice of Dayton.  As Dayton’s primary hospice, Hospice of Dayton is a non-profit organization providing superior care and superior services for patients and families in the Miami Valley.
