SPOONER, WI -- Join the Washburn County Area Humane Society (WCAHS) for “Mardi Paws - Pins for Pets” Saturday, February 26, at Northwoods Lanes in Spooner. The 16th annual fundraiser is in memory of Dave Masterjohn, a chance to celebrate his life with family and friends.
Masterjohn was such a well-loved community member and a longtime supporter and friend of the shelter, helping out in so many ways.
Bowlers of all ages and skill levels are welcome. This nine-pin tap tournament, which benefits the WCAHS, allows bowlers to get a higher score because when nine pins are knocked down with the first ball thrown, it counts as a strike.
The registration fee is $30, which covers three games of bowling, shoes, ball rental if needed, snacks, and a donation to WCAHS. Bowlers may come as a team or sign up individually for either the 11 am, 3 pm, or 7 pm shifts.
If anyone would like to bring an item from the shelter's “wish list,” they will receive a raffle ticket.
Pre-registration is suggested. Call Northwoods Lanes at 715.939.1203 or stop at the alley to sign up. Bowlers may also register the day of the event if there are still openings left.
It is not necessary to bowl to participate! Stop by, enjoy a snack, and visit with friends. And be sure to purchase a couple of raffle tickets to win one of the beautiful gift baskets being offered this year.
