PELLA — Christian Opportunity Center, or COC, will host Spare Some Time for COC, a bowling FUN-raiser and silent auction, from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, March 19 at Statesmen Lanes and Event Center. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. for the silent auction.
COC hopes this event will encourage positive social interactions between people with disabilities and community members. Social interactions for people with disabilities can be limited due to a lack of opportunities to meet others outside their family, work or church life.
Spare Some Time for COC is an opportunity to create and foster new friendships and to focus on all the people with disabilities have to offer.
"The benefits for people with disabilities to have positive friendships are amazing, it can even help increase an individual’s lifespan. But it is what people with disabilities can give back to the community that is even more amazing to me,” said Amy ZUck, COC public information director. “Everyone we support has so many gifts to give back. I want everyone to have the opportunity to see all they have to offer. These relationships can change lives for the better."
This year, the COC will be adding to the fun by including a few new ways people can participate in Spare Some Time. They invite the community to join in weekly challenges leading up to Spare Some Time. Weekly challenges and prizes will be posted on the COC Facebook page.
Community members are encouraged to come out and bowl with COC on Sunday, March 19. Individual bowling tickets are $25 per person, and this price includes bowling, shoes and an event t-shirt. A team/family rate of $85 is available for groups of four. Tickets for Spare Some Time can be purchased online at one.bidpal.net/sparesometime23/welcome.
If you aren't able to bowl but would still like to support COC, event t-shirts are available to purchase at coc2023fundraiser.itemorder.com/shop/sale.
All proceeds of this event will support the programs and services COC provides to people with disabilities.
