TEWKSBURY — Tewksbury Police Chief Timothy B. Sheehan and Wilmington Police Chief Michael Begonis would like to invite the public to a fundraising event for Cops for Kids With Cancer next month.
WHEN: Sunday, June 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
WHERE: Wamesit Lanes, 434 Main St., Tewksbury
WHAT: All communities are welcome to join the Tewksbury and Wilmington Police Departments for a family-friendly event next month to raise money for Cops for Kids With Cancer. Over the past eight years, there have been six families in Tewksbury and nearly as many in Wilmington who have received one of Cops for Kids With Cancer’s generous $5,000 donations. Both departments want to continue to support additional awards across the Commonwealth. This is truly a family event and all participants are encouraged to bring their families. There will be lots of free things for kids of all ages to do. All past recipients of the $5,000 Cops for Kids With Cancer awards and their families are also invited to come and enjoy the event.
During the event, there will be a bowling competition and a cornhole competition. Businesses, residents, law enforcement, firefighters and EMS providers are encouraged to put together a team and join in some friendly competition for a good cause.
Five-person bowling teams can register by sending in the Bowling Team Registration Form or online at https://wamesitlanes.com/event/cops-for-kids-with-cancer. The time slots available to bowl are at 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. at the cost of $500 per team. Lane sponsorships are available for an additional $500 and include your name and/or logo on the television screens above your lane.
Two-person cornhole teams can register by sending in the Cornhole Team Registration Form or online at https://wamesitlanes.com/event/cops-for-kids-with-cancer. Time slots available for cornhole are 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the cost of $40 per team. There will be trophies for the winning teams and bragging rights until the following year’s event.
The arcade at Wamesit Lanes will also be open for free for participants with plenty of games and complementary food. Additionally, attendees can enjoy Touch-a-Truck with police and fire vehicles, K-9 units, SWAT, horses, motorcycles and more. There will be a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction, and a “Closest to the Pin” and “Longest Drive” golf competitions. This event is open to the public and all proceeds will go directly to Cops for Kids With Cancer.
We recognize this event cannot be a success without all your help and we appreciate anything anyone can do to help. Anyone with questions, individuals who would like to volunteer, or those who cannot make it to the event but wish to contribute a donation or a silent auction item, can contact Wamesit Lanes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
