Yikes Tikes! Bowl-a-thons in full swing
Donors lining up to support inclusive preschool fundraiser
Bay Area, Ca: Yikes Tikes! annual Spring bowl-a-thons are garnering more attention this year. Maybe that’s because of the dynamism of this year’s crop of co-op families. A growing list of businesses have donated items and cash to support Fremont, Los Altos, and San Jose Yikes Tikes!, and all due to the efforts of our co-ops.
“At first we were worried that Fremont, which started earlier, was going to take all the donors available in the community,” says Hillarie Cox, a member in San Jose. “Then we realized that community support is like love– there’s always enough to go around.” San Jose Yikes Tikes!, working with Los Altos Yikes Tikes!, has secured donations from a growing list of local businesses, including the Oakland A’s, InSpa of Santana Row, The Exploratorium, Area 51 and Play! in Los Altos, Smitten Ice Cream, and the San Francisco 49ers. Most of these sponsorships take the form of raffle prizes which you can win at the Super Bowl-a-thon, which will take place May 9th, at Homestead Bowl, from 10:30-12:30 pm. Homestead Bowl is located at 20990 Homestead Rd, Cupertino, CA 95014
Fremont’s Bowl-a-thon, meanwhile, boasts sponsorships from Disneyland, Gilroy Gardens, California Academy of Sciences, Tressa Williams of State Farm, NeuroPop, Decorative Plumbing Distributors, Sunrise Medical Supplies, Stevenson Surgery Center, and East Bay Natural Medicine. Some of these businesses donated prizes which will be raffled off at the event (including 4 tickets to Disneyland!). Fremont’s Bowl-a-thon will take place on April 25th, at Cloverleaf Family Bowl, from 12-2:30 pm. Cloverleaf is located at 40645 Fremont Ave, Fremont, CA 94538.
Our bowl-a-thons are inclusive and family-friendly, just like our preschools. Even the youngest preschoolers can bowl with assistive bowling devices. You can read more about bowling with Yikes Tikes! here. Tickets are $20 each and are available here for Cloverleaf and here for Homestead. Raffle tickets are available for purchase at the door.
