Oct. 27 – Fur Bowl in Madison Heights Benefits Paws for Life

Oct. 27 – Fur Bowl in Madison Heights Benefits Paws for Life

October 15, 2019, Madison Heights, Mich. – Every fall, Paws for Life hosts one of its largest fundraisers of the year, the annual Halloween Fur Bowl. Costume-clad kids and adults pay $25 each to bowl three games, which includes shoe rental and pizza and pop for lunch. For 2019, the annual Fur Bowl moves to Astro Lanes in Madison Heights on Sunday, October 27, starting at noon. Astro Lanes is located at 32388 John R Rd. in Madison Heights.

“We have always received strong support from the Madison Heights community,” said Courtney Protz-Sanders, executive director of the non-profit animal rescue Paws for Life. “Several years ago, we donated canine oxygen masks to the Madison Heights fire department and our partnership with the city has only grown from there.”

Paws for Life’s Fur Bowl goes beyond bowling, which means there’s something for everyone, even non-bowlers. Everyone is welcome to come out and play the raffles, bid on the silent auction items, enter the Halloween costume content for kids and adults (prizes will be awarded), check out the Buy It Now board and partake in the plethora of goodies in the bake sale.

“We are sweetening the deal this Halloween,” said Protz-Sanders. “Each ticket purchased in advance of the event will come with a free raffle ticket.” Those advance ticket purchases can be made at https://2019furbowl.eventbrite.com.

All Fur Bowl proceeds benefit the homeless pets of Paws for Life. Since Paws for Life has no paid staff and receives no government support, every penny donated and raised goes directly to the animals in its care.
