  5th Anniversary 'Strikes for Scholars' Bowl-a-Thon Fundraising Event  
     
  MEREDA is proud to host its 5th Annual "Strikes for Scholars" Fundraising Event at Bayside Bowl in Portland on May 4, 2017.  "Strikes for Scholars" supports scholarships for Maine students pursuing studies in building trades, architecture, construction, engineering or a business program at a Maine Community College (MCCS), or the College of Science, Technology & Health at the University of Southern Maine.  

MEREDA strongly supports a strong education system.  In fact, over the past 4 years, MEREDA is proud to have raised and donated over $47,000 in scholarships helping over 30 Maine students by making it a little easier for them to achieve their goal of obtaining a college credential. Last year alone, we raised enough funds to provide 16 $1500 sponsorships!                 

Many thanks to Landry / French Construction Company, AAA Energy Service Company, and Mainebiz for their continued support on our 5th Anniversary!  

We are looking for: 

  • 24 Teams, up to six people
  • 2 Additional Food Sponsors at $1000 each (Contact the MEREDA Office before March 20th in order to make the Mainebiz Ad print deadline!)
  • Not able to bowl?  Come anyway, cheer on our teams, network, buy raffle tickets and support this worthy cause!  

What you get: 

  • "Pay it Forward" with 100% of net proceeds funding the scholarship program
  • Sponsorships provide high visibility on press releases, publications, social media mentions, the MEREDA website and signage at the event.
  • Opportunity to be creative!  Best Team Shirts gets a Summer Bowling Party!
  • Opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for Cash Prizes!

What are you waiting for?  REGISTER NOW!  It fills up fast!  Please Download our Registration Form and return to info@mereda.org by April 1st.
