RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With tens of thousands of East Coast residents still without power, and many without homes, as a result of Superstorm Sandy, AMF Bowling Centers is hosting a nationwide event on Sunday, November 18 to raise funds for the American Red Cross.
From noon to 6 p.m. on November 18, every AMF and 300 bowling center across the country will offer a two-hour $10 per person bowling session. $5 from each session will be donated to the American Red Cross in support of their relief efforts for those affected by Sandy.
"With so many of our friends, customers and employees impacted by this storm, we saw firsthand the devastation that Sandy caused," said Steve Satterwhite, AMF's CFO and COO. "As soon as the storm passed and the damage was assessed, it was clear that we needed to give back and help the people suffering from the storm's aftermath – which is why we're asking our friends and neighbors across the country to join us on November 18."
For those unable to come out and bowl on November 18, monetary donations can be made directly to the American Red Cross' website.
