Best Buy of Manteca is partnering with Give Every Child A Chance to support free tutoring for struggling kids by helping sponsor the 11th Annual Antone E. Raymus Bowl-A-Thon on Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Manteca Bowl and Family Fun Center.

Best Buy has donated a 32-inch LCD High Definition TV, with a two-year limited warranty, as a special raffle prize drawing for the event.  The drawing will take place on Feb. 28, in the evening, at Best Buy during their one-year anniversary celebration.  Each raffle ticket sells for $5 with 100% of the proceeds to benefit GECAC.  

Raffle tickets can be purchased at three locations:
•Give Every Child A Chance, 610 Commerce Court    

• Give Every Child A Chance Education Center, 322 Sun West Place

• Manteca Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, 1422 Grove Ave. at The Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley Manteca, CA 95337

 The Manteca Bowl and Family Fun Center is hosting the Bowl-A-Thon again this year, supplying all 48 lanes (from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.), shoes, and staff to insure the success of the bowl-a-thon, all at no charge to Give Every Child A Chance.  The current major event sponsors are Marie Raymus, Manteca Bowl and Family Fun Center, Albert and Rina Brocchini Family Foundation and Manteca Sunrise Kiwanis.  
There are five players per team with a minimum fundraising commitment of  $250 per team. Teams will have two games of bowling, T-shirts, rental of shoes, and drink included.

Challenges are encouraged. Individual youth bowlers that collect the most pledges can earn extra prizes with the top three winning a pass to Boomers.  The school that collects the most pledges will receive a complete computer package or a $500 school shopping spree.
