Annual Bowling for Boxers fundraiser strikes this week

The Pre-Veterinary Club and Beta Theta Pi will host this year’s Bowling for Boxers event on Nov. 3 at SpareZ bowling alley located on 5325 South University Drive.

Michaela Johnson, marine biology and biology double major and president of the Pre-Veterinary Club said, “all the money collected will be donated to Boxer Friends, Inc. rescue group down in South Florida” adding, that the “[organization] goes above and beyond giving boxers life saving operations.”

Boxer Friends, Inc. was established in 2000 and is a nonprofit charitable organization that is devoted to helping purebred Boxers in areas of Broward, Miami-Dade and south Palm Beach counties. They rescue displaced Boxers and those that are going to be put down in order to help them find new, loving and permanent homes.  

In years past, Beta Theta Pi has hosted the event. However, the Pre-Vet Club will be taking the lead this year. They hope that the event will keep expanding and increase from last year’s event which earned the largest fundraiser Bowling for Boxers had ever collected with a total of $2000.

“Personally, I want to try and get at least $2500 this year” Johnson said. “I guess will have to see.”

The event costs $20 per person, and participants form teams of up to six people. The admission price includes access to lanes, unlimited food and drinks and bowling shoes.

The Pre-Vet Club will table in the UC Spine on Oct. 30 until Nov. 3 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. where people interested in going can sign up to attend the event. The event will begin at 7 p.m. on Nov. 3 and end at 10 p.m.
