Chill N Bowl Planning Committee Meeting
December 18, 2019 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
What is the Chill N Bowl? What goes into preparing for this event every year?
This meeting is open to all members! Come learn about this annual event as we start planning for the February 2020 Chill N Bowl. You can even join the committee going forward after this meeting if you would like to be more involved in planning. We welcome new ideas and perspectives!
Here is some information about Chill N Bowl: This event was first organized in 2009 as a fun activity that combines a bowling tournament with a chili cook-off. The first year had seven bowling teams participate. In 2010, the number of teams doubled and we added a charity aspect holding a silent auction where proceeds went to Capitol Shakespeare. Since then, the event has developed into the largest fundraiser for the YPN. In addition, the Chill-N-Bowl traveling trophy has become a highly coveted piece of hardware! Due to the incredible success of the event, the YP Network has also used it as an opportunity to give back to the community by donating a portion of the proceeds to various charitable organizations. The YPN’s non-profit partner (a charitable organization from the Bismarck-Mandan community chosen by the YPN on an annual basis) is invited to also raise funds at this event. A portion of the proceeds, combined with any funds the organization raises at the event (by holding a raffle, silent auction, etc.) is donated to that charity. This is a fun event that brings out the competitive spirit in all of us!
